Jennifer is a playwright, director, and scholar motivated by a fascination with the limits and possibilities of the archive, and the challenges to fair use, copyright, and creative transformation that this work can engender.
Her plays (hailed as “wistful, poetic, and wise” by the Chicago Tribune) have been staged in Lexington, Chicago, Columbus, Eugene, Seattle, Cleveland, New York, and London. Her scholarly work has been published in TDR, Theatre Survey, Theatre Journal, and in several edited collections. She also writes a regular column for Dramatists Magazine.
She is currently an associate professor in the Department of Theatre at The Ohio State University, where she is an award-winning teacher of studio courses in playwriting, adaptation, devising, and solo performance, as well as seminars in American popular culture.
For OSU’s Department of Theatre, Jen founded and coordinates the Lab Series, a student-driven, department-nurtured performance series focused on new work development. She regularly collaborates with Available Light Theatre, and is a proud Member of, and Southern Ohio’s Regional Representative to, the Dramatists Guild.
