Teaching Artist with The Viola Project since: 2017
Evey Reidy is a Chicago-based actress, teaching artist, and self-professed Shakespeare nerd. When not teaching with The Viola Project, Evey serves as Director of Communications for Chicago Youth Shakespeare, where she is also a teaching artist, and has worked performing Shakespeare for students with the Boston Shakespeare Project. A proud graduate of Tufts University, Evey's scholarly work has explored how Shakespeare writes about gender identity and mental illness. She is so grateful she gets to show Viola students all the ways Shakespeare can be vibrant, current, and accessible to them and to all!
"We two alone will sing like birds i' the cage: / When thou dost ask me blessing, I'll kneel down, / And ask of thee forgiveness: so we'll live, / And pray, and sing"
