Posted by: John Meredith
Lindsay (she/her/hers) is an engagement-driven actor, director, producer, theatre artist and educator with a passion for justice, representation, gender and body image activism in theatre.
Lindsay earned critical acclaim, including the Elliot Norton Award and IRNE Award for Best Actress -- Small Theatre, for her portrayal of Helen in Fat Pig by Neil LaBute (Flat Earth Theatre), and has acted with many local theatre companies, including Boston Theater Company, Bridge Repertory Theatre, Fort Point Theatre Channel, and Flat Earth Theatre, the last of which she has been a Company Member and artistic leader of since 2013 (currently on sabbatical). Both as an actor and director, Lindsay strives to create radically representative theatre addressing urgent societal issues, and her favorite directorial credits include productions which sought to amplify the voices of those who do not often get a chance to speak.
In addition to her freelance acting and directing work, Lindsay facilitates interactive educational programming at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, with a focus on civic engagement, and Deana’s Educational Theater, with a focus on intimate partner violence, bullying, and healthy relationships.
Her nominator, Kim MacCormack told us, "She does it ALL and is so incredible at all of it. She's thoughtful, intuitive, empathetic, intentional, patient, kind...She's a tremendous collaborator and makes you feel welcome the moment you walk into the room. She's so supportive and a cheerleader to so many. She goes above and beyond on-stage and off"
Lindsay is thrilled to have been accepted into the annual DirectorsLabChicago
, where she will join ~20 other mid-career directors later this summer in Chicago to more deeply consider and develop her vision and craft.
