Peter Fenton is a writer and producer for both theater and film best known for ABANDON ALL HOPE, his dark comedy/drama play that premiered Off-Broadway in 2023. Raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Fenton holds a BA from Wheaton College in Illinois and completed a postgraduate apprenticeship at Philadelphia's Walnut Street Theatre.


Fenton's cinematic work has been showcased on the international film festival circuit, earning awards for both his role as producer and co-writer of the psychological thriller NIGHT VOICES with Dadley Productions and for his directorial debut, family drama INHERENTLY SPECIAL, which Fenton wrote and produced through his own company, Fenton Productions.


Fenton's stage plays have been performed at Theatre Row and The Flea in New York City, Lambertville Hall, the Philly Improv Theater, West Art Lancaster, and various community and school theaters. Fenton most enjoys creating stories that blend whimsical dark humor with magic realism, especially those that explore themes of identity, interpersonal relationships, and the meaning of life.

Currently residing in New Hope, Pennsylvania, Fenton works as the Marketing Associate for Passage Theatre Company in Trenton, New Jersey and as a freelance artist for Bucks County Playhouse, McCarter Theatre, and various individual clients.


"Funny as hell and heavenly sweet... a delightful read!"

Dramatists Guild of America


"Fenton's quirky sense of humor, his spot-on timing and pace, and his ability to understand what an audience likes have made

The Thousand-Year Rose my favorite play."

Theater Director

"Behind the dark comedy..., and indeed Fenton has quite the sense of humor and I found myself laughing out loud multiple times, lies an enduring message."
