Emily Jackson Biography

Emily Jackson is an energetic, intuitive, and ambitious director and producer who holds storytelling above all else. With a deep love for and understanding of craft and collaboration, Emily seeks out work that is socially relevant, engages a diverse community of artists and audiences, and is equal parts theatrical and human. Emily is passionate about amplifying and expanding the American theatre canon and focuses much of her work on new plays. Emily has been in residency at Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts in Ithaca, NY, has served as a member of the Lark's Literary Wing, adapts the work of Italian playwright Dacia Maraini.

In addition to directing, Emily is a bold arts administrator with a proven record of producing theatre in New York City and the regions. She was a lead producer of 2X4 in Repertory's productions of Mary Stuart and Pillowman at the Margo Jones Theater in Dallas and this spring she managed a world premiere production at 59E59 Theaters. Most recently, Emily served as the Artistic Associate and Director of Audience Services for Kitchen Theatre Company in Ithaca, NY where she helmed the new play development series curating the slate of artists, establishing partnerships with community organizations to support the program, and meeting budgetary and funding requirements. Emily was also in charge of all patron communications, assisted with season-long marketing efforts, and facilitated fundraising campaigns. She orchestrated play-specific audience engagements events, hosted talkbacks, led classes at community learning centers, and mentored cohorts of artistic and administrative fellows.

Emily is currently the artistic director of Sanguine Theatre Company, a 501(c)(3) organization that produces world premiere plays. The cornerstone of Sanguine's programming is Project Playwright, a festival that receives more than 400 submissions annually. Sanguine recently had a successful off-Broadway run at 59E59 Theaters with theatre provocateur Brian Dykstra's Education. In its nine-year history, Sanguine has developed the work of over 40 playwrights, given creative opportunities to countless emerging artists in New York City, and built a foundation on telling vital human stories.
