Dudley has written FOUR evening-length performance pieces, the most well-known of which include BIRDBONES,
which premiered at The Kitchen in New York, and DEATH BLUES, which, in a fit of perversity, New York Press selected as "Best Musical of the Year."
The earlier two are THE LONG SWALLOWED HAIR (or FAGGOT SKIN) (also at The Kitchen) and SECOND SLEEP (at New York's Pyramid Club).
He has received writing fellowships from Yaddo, The Edward Albee Foundation and the Atlantic Center for the Arts, as well as a grant from the Joyce Mertz-Gilmore Foundation. He has contributed fiction to The Kenyon Review and the late East Village journal, LOWER LEVELS OF SOCIETY.
He also wrote the 2001 documentary film, THE PROCESS (under the title "Story Editor").
