Meet the Fresh Ink Team
Jessie Baxter (Literary Director) hails from beautiful Colorado and is a lover of American history, British literature, and French pastries. She graduated from Emerson College, where she studied dramaturgy, directing, and gender studies. She’s previously worked at Denver Center Theatre Company, The Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, and The Playwright’s Center and currently does freelance work in the Boston area. When she’s not working on plays, Jessie can be found advocating for reproductive rights, watching art house films, and eating frozen yogurt.
Lyndsay Allyn Cox (Managing Director) is very excited to be a part of the Fresh Ink team. She studied acting, directing and vocal music at Appalachian State University and at The University of Florida. While in college she learned to enjoy the dramatic arts as well as the drama of college football (Go Gators!). By day Lyndsay is a Montessori teacher in Boston and by night she is an aspiring actor and director working with several, local companies. She enjoys dancing, cooking, and doing both simultaneously.
Louise Hamill (Artistic Director) is thrilled to be heading up a new venture for theatre artists and audiences. An actress and costumer, she studied theatre at Connecticut College and the British American Drama Academy in London, where she also fell in love with the National Portrait Gallery. She has since worked with many companies both on and off stage in Boston. She is constantly looking for ways to expand her horizons and shoe collection, and is known to be mildly obsessed with giraffes.
Amanda Sheehan (Marketing Manager) was raised in the south but is a New Englander at heart. She moved to Boston a few years ago after writing (and rediscovering theatre) and abandoning a graduate thesis in globalization studies. She’s been amazed at how receptive the Boston theatre community is and has happily been stage managing and doing PR and marketing for a number of theatres around town. She recently completed her new graduate thesis, an oral history of Boston theatre since the 1970s. She’s also an avid baker (when she has time) and will gladly bake you vegan, gluten-free goodies if you ask her nicely.
Kaitee Tredway (Production Manager) became taller in Connecticut, but grew up in the hills of Southern Vermont at Bennington College, where she studied theater, literature, and how to pull off effective all-nighters. As an actress and costume designer, she has been lucky enough to collaborate with a variety of theater companies in Boston. She talks about James Joyce an absurd amount when she isn’t talking about theater. Oh! She’s also a bonified tap dancer and puppeteer.
