Jessica Reese hails from east Tennessee and moved to Chicago in 2011 after interning in the literary office at Actors Theatre of Louisville. Since then, she's been the dramaturg for productions of classic and world-premiere plays in Chicago, Louisville, and Portland, OR. She's also an editor for the arts and culture site General Admission (www.generaladmissionchicago.com). She likes making theater in state parks and church gyms and with you. Sometimes she writes. She doubts that there are parallel universes but hopes that in another universe she is an astronaut, although being a dramaturg is not bad either. Whatever building she's in, she'd rather be outside. Jess is a proud graduate of Davidson College in North Carolina.
