 Nancy Palmento Schuler was born and raised in Waterbury and has lived in Litchfield for the past 18 years with her husband, Ed. It is because of her Waterbury background that she is able to bring alive the story of 3 women who moved to the Waterbury area during different times in history and for very different reasons. 

At age 68, she has been transitioning to writing and acting. Her story about Teresa, her Italian immigrant grandmother, has been awarded a place at the New York Public Library Equity Theater’s 2017 search for new playwrights and and also the Manhattan Repertory Theatre in NYC. She has also performed at Osher Life Long Learning at the University of Connecticut, the New Britain Museum, Shakesperience Productions, the Mattatuck Museum and many community centers and libraries. Her latest play, Henry and Marion, (62 years of wedded bliss, not) will be performed at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre this month.
