What is the 20th century for you? 

Join Morgan Jenness, dramaturg for The Grand Parade, for a pre-show discussion on how Double Edge Theatre distilled the many historical, political, and social movements of the 20th century into a single theatrical work. 

Morgan Jenness has worked as a dramaturg, workshop director, and artistic consultant at theaters and new play programs across the country.  She spent over a decade at the New York Shakespeare Festival/Public Theater- with both Joseph Papp and George C. Wolfe- in various capacities from literary manager to Associate Producer.  She was Associate Artistic Director at the New York Theater Workshop; an Associate Director at the Los Angeles Theater Center in charge of new projects; and an agent and creative consultant at the Helen Merrill and Abrams Artists agencies. Currently, she is on the faculty at Fordham, Pace and Columbia Universities, as well as Creative Director at This Distracted Globe Consultancy.  In 2003, Ms. Jenness was presented with an Obie Award Special Citation for Longtime Support of Playwrights.   She is also the winner of a 2015 Duke Impact Award and the GE Lessing Award from LMDA.
