Gwynn is a performer/writer who graduated from the University of Maryland and came to Chicago in 2004. With a background in classical performance, opera, and academia, she has been most drawn to works that challenge both the performer and the audience to think critically. She was last seen contending in the philanthropic writing series WRITE CLUB. Gwynn’s latest theatrical work has been in the realm of non-illusory and historically-driven theatre, having recently co-written and performed in Chalk & Saltwater: The Ladder Project [Neo-Futurists]. Currently she is developing a piece based on the life of Antoinette Perry, in whose honor the Tony Awards were created. Through working with Perry’s family and nearly unprecedented access to private/unpublished memoirs, Gwynn aims to fashion an intimate small-cast portrait of Antoinette that reaches beyond her career as a blockbuster Broadway actress-turned-director to reflect the surprising “everyday-ness” of the mother, widow, woman of faith, mentor and war relief volunteer.
