Greg Carter teaches stagecraft, stage management, and scenic design at Cornish College of the Arts. He is the former technical director of Book-It Repertory Theatre where he designed sets for "Pride and Prejudice", "The Awakening", "In a Shallow Grave", "Ethan Frome", "Hard Times", and others. While at Book-It, Greg built scenery and managed productions at Intiman, Seattle Rep, ACT, On the Boards, NWAAT, and Kirkland Performance Center. He designed "Amahl and the Night Visitors" for Seattle Symphony and remounted "Prejudice" at Portland Center Stage in 2005. He has a Master's degree in Architecture (UW).
In the Summer of 2004, Greg founded the Strawberry Theatre Workshop on Capitol Hill. Dedicated to providing jobs for artists and political relevance for audiences, Strawshop has produced notable plays such as "Accidental Death of an Anarchist", "An Enemy of the People", and "Life of Galileo." A center for great writing, the company has explored literary agitators of the last two centuries, including Thornton Wilder, Woody Guthrie, Charles Dickens, Arthur Miller, David Mamet, Henrik Ibsen, Dario Fo, and Bertolt Brecht.
Carter wrote original adaptations for Guthrie and Dickens, the latter being critically acclaimed three-person "Christmas Carol" that Strawshop re-named "Fellow Passengers". In the fall of 2006, Carter was the first writer granted permission by the Wilder estate to adapt the Pulitzer Prize winning "The Bridge of San Luis Rey" (1928) as a stage play.
Strawshop was the 2007 recipient of the Stranger's Genius Award for a Theatre Organization in only its fourth year of operation. Several Strawshop artists have been recognized with the most prestigious awards in Seattle theatre, including Gabriel Baron, Amy Thone (individual Stranger Geniuses) and Todd Jefferson Moore (TPS Falls Award).
