This is one of the shortest pieces I've ever written, based on a singer I knew back in the day when I worked as a cocktail waitress in a bar in the East Village. She loved martinis and loved to sing, and sometimes the two worked together in perfect harmony.

City Boy

"City Boy" appeared in Granta 118: Exit Strategies (Winter 2012). The story, about the friendship between a 20-something young woman and a 6-year-old boy, takes place in the very different New York of the 1980s, all but unrecognizable today.

Judy Chicurel's "City Boy" is the touching account of a young woman's relationship with a distrustful boy.
–The Guardian

City Boy appeared in the Winter 2012 issue of Granta


Damon and Debra

NY Fringe Festival 2009: "...skillfully penned by Judy Chicurel, the dialogue is sharp and funny throughout and the relationship that develops between Damon and Debra grows naturally before our eyes."


– review by Amber Gallery


"Playwright Judy Chicurel has hit one out of the park at her first New York theater with a fascinating interaction between two commuters stranded together on a subway train."

–Lauren Yarger, Reflections in the Light theater blog
