Josh Inocéncio is a Houston-based writer and theatre artist.
After finishing his Master’s at Florida State University, he returned to Houston to tour his solo play, Purple Eyes, across Texas, which culminated in the world premiere at Stages Repertory Theatre. Last year, he finished writing a trilogy titled Splintered in Three, and two of the plays were semifinalists for the Eugene O’Neill National Playwright’s Conference. His work has been featured at Stages, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Greenhouse Theatre in Chicago, Teatro Milagro in Portland, among others. He’s also trained under Migdalia Cruz at the Maria Irene Fornés Playwright’s Workshop. Alongside playwriting, he’s written for two publications in the city—OutSmart Magazine and Spectrum South—where he focused on personal narrative, politics, and culture.
Currently, he’s writing his first novel, milk bread. An excerpt of it appeared at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival in 2019.
