My name is Phoebe Roberts, and welcome to my site. Hopefully you’ve come here because you’ve enjoyed my work and would be interested in learning more about it. Let me tell you a little about myself!
I am an emerging artistic professional focused in writing, directing, modeling, and costume design. I am experienced to varying degrees in nearly every aspect of creative and technical theater. I am available for collaborations, jobs, and commissions in those fields, and if you would be interested in hiring or engaging me, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would be happy to send along my resume, references, and/or rates.
My day job is teaching at local colleges in the Boston area. I am a visiting instructor of English, literature, and composition at Lesley University, and have adjuncted in writing and theater at North Shore Community College, MCPHS, and Montserrat College of Art.
I attended Brandeis University from 2005 to 2009, where I earned my BA double majoring in English and Creative Writing. My primary association there was in Hold Thy Peace, the undergraduate Shakespearean theater troupe. I did my graduate work at Lesley University from 2011 to 2013, earning an MFA in Creative Writing for the Stage and Screen.
I have had some success in bringing my theatrical works to production. My ten-minute plays have seen performance across the country. My full-length screenplay The Tailor at Loring’s End (2012), a murder mystery set in Depression-era Connecticut, made it into the top ten percent of scripts in the 2013 Final Draft Big Break Screenwriting Contest. Another full-length screenplay, Adonis (2015), a gender-swapped epic about rebellion in Ancient Rome, was in the top ten percent of the 2015 BlueCat Screenwriting Competition. My most major full-length work is Mrs. Hawking, a series of adventure stage shows about lady society avengers in Victorian London, was performed as part of Arisia from 2015 to the present in Boston as well as the Watch City Steampunk Festival in Waltham. My pieces are available for production, so if you are interested in performing something of mine, please contact me right away.
I live in Newton, Massachusetts with my partner, physicist and AI engineer Bernie Gabin.
