About Me

phoeberobertsbeachheadshot

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, acting, directing, modeling, and costume design. I am experienced to varying degrees in nearly every aspect of creative and technical theater. I have three years of classical ballet training. 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 an adjunct professor of English, literature, and composition. Currently I teach at Lesley University, North Shore Community College, and Bunker Hill Community College.

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 under the tutelage of Kate Snodgrass, Barry Brodsky, and Jami Brandli.

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 2015-2017 in Boston as well as the Watch City Steampunk Festival in Waltham. It will be returning to both events in 2018. My pieces are available for production, so if you are interested in performing something of mine, please contact me right away.

I live in Waltham, Massachusetts. I’ve been in a relationship with physicist Bernie Gabin since 2013. My hobbies include cooking, working out, and live action roleplaying.

  1. Hi Phoebe,

    I had the pleasure of catching Mrs. Hawking at Arisia and I was quite impressed. You are quite accomplished already given your young age (I didn’t even write my first one-act until I was 44) and I predict greater success in the future.

    My question is regarding Brandeis. My 17 year old is a junior at Dover/Sherborn High School and her first choice is to go to Brandeis, either as an English or Theater Arts major. As a relatively recent grad, do you have any thoughts on what she might try to emphasize in either an interview or an audition tape that might help set her apart based on what you think they like to see? If you have the opportunity to reply, I can be reached at paulmarsh18@yahoo.com

    I wish you the best of luck in your career and look forward to seeing future works authored by you.

    Sincerely,
    Paul Marsh
