MT started telling stories for the stage as an improviser with an English degree. Her plays have been produced at Piven Theatre, Chicago Dramatists (where she’s a resident playwright), The Side Project, 20% Theatre, Victory Gardens, and other spots around the country. She’s told stories at shows including You’re Being Ridiculous, Louder Than a Mom, This Much is True, and Story Sessions, and her work has been published by Hippocampus Books, Original Works, and many literary journals. Over the years, she has melded her fascination with before, after, and between into a career that embraces writing, directing, teaching, performing, and one stint as a freelance private investigator. She holds an MFA from Northwestern University, and is represented by The Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency.
