Jessica directed a lovely, haunting production of my play UNCANNY VALLEY. Never allowing the script’s unusual technical requirements to overshadow the relationship between the two characters, she created a staging that beautifully captured the elusive, unsettling blend of humanity and strangeness that I envisioned in the play. In addition, her feedback on the script, both before and during the production, proved to be invaluable in its continuing development.

Jessica’s calm guidance and elegant craftsmanship gave me the confidence to play this part, which frankly scared the shit out of me. I believe she is the future of the theater. She understands what people want to see and think about, right now, in this bubble of time that we live in.

Working with Jessica Bird is an absolutely rewarding experience that results in a strong and positive collaboration. She brings a deep understanding of the script and a clear vision for the production, while still allowing creative input from designers. I look forward to the opportunity of working with her again.
