“Im not doing my job as an artist if I don’t ruffle feathers. I believe women don’t make history being silent.”
Oakland-native Tracie Collins is an Oakland Indie nominee, American playwright, director, and producer who is best known for her fourth stage play Cold Piece of Werk that put sex trafficking in a theatrical spotlight.
Tracie credits her father for introducing her to the arts at the tender age of nine. Collins took acting classes at the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) in San Francisco. Throughout her formative years, still studied acting and appearing in theatrical productions as early as 11 years old.
