Log-in to Favorite

Born, bred, and currently based in New York City, Lillian is primarily a self-producer. Most of her work is site-specific, and explores the boundaries of performance and the role of the audience in live theater. She has developed new plays with playwrights, directors, and devising ensembles for a variety of companies and venues, including Theatre for a New Audience, Soho Rep, Ars Nova, Clubbed Thumb, Dixon Place, Culture Project, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Columbia University, UglyRhino, Galapagos Art Space, and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center National Playwrights Festival, among many others. She is the Artistic Director of The Motor Company – a theater company dedicated to making accessible new work using public spaces as the impetus for story-telling and theatrical events; a founding member of The Living Room – an ensemble of eight female theater artists dedicated to making new plays about the contemporary American female, and Epic Frame – creating new performance experiences through ensemble collaboration from concept to production; and, an associated artist of foolsFURY Theater Company in San Francisco. She is an alumna of Vassar College and the National Theater Institute, a former directing intern with Actors Theatre of Louisville, and a member of the Lincoln Center Directors Lab, the Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab, and the inaugural Clubbed Thumb Directors Fellowship. Although she is not a writer, she does occasionally pen plays, poems, and essays, and conceived and scripted The Living Room’s most recent play, #liberated (ANT Fest 2015 and IRT 3B Development Series 2016).
