Mollie Gordon (she/her/hers) is a writer, educator, and so many other things based in Brooklyn, NY. She is currently a junior at Sarah Lawrence College, where she is studying Theatre, Education, and Writing. Involved in the theatre world from a young age as a member of the renowned Children's Chorus at The Metropolitan Opera, Mollie has worked everywhere from The Met to the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. Mollie is deeply passionate about making the arts accessible for children of all backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. She wants to help make theatre an actively anti-racist space, where all people feel free to gather around a shared theatrical experience. As a queer Jewish woman, Mollie is interested in writing works that center queerness and femininity, and in deconstructing theatrical conventions even as she draws from Shakespeare and classical theatre practices. She uses her writing and theatre-making to explore the fluid areas between polarities and binaries, where important conversations can be provoked and initiated.
