MEL ENGLAND (Actor/Writer) is no stranger to one-man land: he starred in the NY premiere of Israel Horovitz's One-Man play about September 11th "3 Weeks After Paradise" at the Cherry Lane (also Los Angeles premiere), and his own one-man show "Navajo Memoirs" was seen at the NY Fringe and Los Angeles. Off-Broadway he's appeared in Pearl Theatre's "Hecuba", and he's the recipient of the NY Fringe Festival's 'Best Acting Ensemble Award' for "Lucky Man", and 'Best Play of the Year' in Denver for the Regional Premiere of "A Shayna Maidel". He's been a proud part of several original New York productions, including "Midsummer Night's Dream" in Washington Square, "Honeysuckles", developed for television by FOX, and "King of Connecticut" with Phillip Seymour Hoffman. On the big screen, he starred opposite legendary character actor Sid Haig in "Little Big Top", starred in "Highlights" (nominated for the Moviefone Film Fest's dramatic competition) and in the dark comedy "Persona Au Gratin".
