The JewelBox Theater Presents FAMILY AFFAIR Tonight
Jennifer Jasper didn't speak until she was 3 years old. And when she finally did, in full sentences, her family didn't understand her. But growing up the middle child of five girls, struggling to express herself, she forged a knack for observation, turning those observations into comedy. Her stories are brutally honest, sometimes poignant, and absolutely hilarious.
Jennifer Jasper in association with JewelBox Theater presents Family Affair - an Evening of Dysfunctional Performance.
Jennifer Jasper has been a fixture of the Northwest theater scene for more than two decades, known for acting, directing, and emceeing. She co-founded Kings' Elephant Theatre (original long form improvisational pieces and scripted plays) and Vixen Productions (Pulp Vixens, A Fistful of Lesbians). Known for her character work, she is a frequent hostess and emcee as the scotch-swilling, hard-living "Maggie." Jennifer's hit autobiographical show I Can Hear You...But I'm Not Listening was featured most recently at Theatre Off Jackson's SPF Festival in March of 2013. In 2013 she was awarded a Jack Straw Artist Support Residency and is currently working on her next solo show as Theatre Off Jackson's Artist in Residence.
