#106 – Jess McAuley

Originating from Niagara, Jess McAuley is a Brock University graduate (theatre studies, honours) with a passion for devised theatre, writing, and pushing the bounds of adventure on stage.

Her recent credits with New Twist include Peter Panhandler (co-creator/producer, 2017), Guilty Pleasures (writer/director, 2016). Previously, Jess has worked with Something-Something Productions for the 2013 production of The Rocky Horror Show (Usherette/Janet), Fragmentos (Maria Chambers, Brock University, 2013), and collaborated with NeXt Theatre Company in The Arab Spring Monologues (2013).

Jess is taking the next steps with New Twist in touring the company with her first ever solo show – to premiere in the London Fringe Festival (2018). Currently untitled, the show is a true coming of age story, beginning in high school and all the way to graduation; it’s a story of finding love and closure while navigating through her depression and melancholy. Though she is a lover of fiction and adventure, Jess has morphed the show into a “confessional”, and invites the audience to peak inside her life through her old journals, letters and photos. You may laugh, you may cry, but Jess hopes that above all she inspires survivors to find courage in standing up for themselves against their own demons and vices.

Its always been important to me that the podcast is a service to the Canadian theatre scene. Which brings the question: what does the Canadian theatre scene actually need?
