carol ann tan theatre director writer chicago

I’m a Singapore-born theatre artist who loves nerding out about directing, writing, and dramaturgy. I’m currently an MFA Directing candidate at Brown University/Trinity Rep.

Broadly, I’m interested in narratives that feature marginalized individuals. But if we’re really looking to get specific, I’m a text-driven artist who’s drawn to sharp, unapologetic writing that mines the tension between individual choices versus societal norms and expectations.
