Island Shakespeare Festival

Erin Murray (she/her; Co-Creator; 3rd Season with ISF) is overjoyed to be back directing work with Island Shakespeare Festival where she previously directed the professional premiere of Scott Kaiser's Shakespeare's Other Women in 2018 and it's revival in 2019. Erin's work has been seen across the Northern Hemisphere including the Irish premiere of Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Winner, Best Production at the Spiegeltent, Dublin Fringe), Anne Washburn's The Internationalist (Next Up, Steppenwolf Garage), the Seattle premiere of Annie Baker's John (ArtsWest), and executive producing the world premiere of Ariel Zetina's Pink Milk: a magical tragedy loosely based on the life of Alan Turing (NYFringe, Chicago Fringe Festival; Winner, New City Stage Top 5 Best New Chicago Plays). C19 sadly brought an early closing to her first immersive production, Last Days of the Tsars, at Stimson-Green Mansion produced by New York's Witness Immersive; she is confidently preparing for directing her adaption of Cyrano de Bergerac: A Heroic Comedy (Kilroys List, 2020) for Island Shakespeare Festival in Summer 2021 featuring a TGNC actor in the titular role.
