about Peter Fenton.

Peter Glen Fenton (he/him/his, b. August 26, 1995) is a writer and producer based in the greater Philadelphia area specializing in writing witty comedic dialogue and producing content inspired by progressive Christianity. Fenton has been writing since he was fourteen years old in Lancaster, Pennsylvania when he authored a stage play for his middle school which was ultimately directed by Suzanne Fisher (a shared mentor of Broadway and film actor Jonathan Groff) in 2010. Fenton has since written three other plays and made his screenwriting debut in 2017, co-writing the award-winning short Filling In (dir. Bradley Hawkins). In early 2019, Fenton was inducted into the Dramatists Guild of America following the formal publication of his first two stage plays. Fenton holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Wheaton College in Illinois and completed a one-year Theatre Administration Apprenticeship at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia.

 

In addition to writing and producing, Fenton has worked as an international boarding school advisor, traveled Europe as a band videographer, worked as an assistant director and stunt double on the upcoming Mena Suvari film Locked In (2020, dir. Carlos V. Gutierrez), and sang bass in the Wheaton College Men's Glee Club. He is a member of Beacon Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and an active community member of Q Christian Fellowship, one of the largest bodies of LGBTQ Christians worldwide. Fenton is the youngest child of Jim and Beth Fenton of Ephrata, Pennsylvania, and brother to sports information director Matthew Fenton and research chemist Dr. Julie Fenton Hodges. Fenton currently lives in New Hope, Pennsylvania, where he continues to write plays and screenplays.
