Patricia R. Floyd

Is a proud native of the "Motor City," Detroit, Michigan. A recipient of two AUDELCO awards and three Audiophile Golden Earphones awards, she has also appeared in films such as Thirty Years to Life and Indelible and has television credits which include Law & Order and two of its franchise dramas, as well as Rescue Me, The Chris Rock Show, and Reading Rainbow. Cutting her directing teeth in Detroit on such projects as for colored girls..., the one-man show Brother Malcom X: Reminiscences of a Black Revolutionary and The Mighty Gents, she slid into the director's chair at STW in Stamford, Connecticut on A Lesson Before Dying (which won two Connecticut Critics Circle Awards). She has also helmed Crumbs from the Table of Joy, Medal of Honor Rag, Blood Knot, A Walk in the Woods and Intimate Apparel. Some of her favorite New York directing credits include We Are Your Sisters for the Blue Heron Theatre, We Beat Whitey Ford for PSNBC, and The Second Coming and Nobody Was Supposed to Survive: The MOVE Massacre for The Open Eye: Eye on Directors Festival. A guest director at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and a part-time scene study instructor at the New York Film Academy, she has also written, produced and directed a short film and is currently negotiating production of stage and film projects.
