About the Playwright
Keenya J. Jackson is an emerging Philadelphia playwright and author and one of the organizers of Media Arts Council play reading series- along with the wonderful Julie Zaffarano and Dave Ebersole. Keenya is a co-founders of Jouska PlayWorks at Simpatico Theatre in Philadelphia and a member of The Foundry, A Playwrights Lab at PlayPenn in Philadelphia. Her play The Return of the Shogun, the first play that she had read at MAC, was a 2023 semi-finalist for the 46th Bay Area Playwrights Festival (BAPF). Readings series like this one at Media Arts Council helped to make that possible.
Keenya has a passion for Young Adult literature, this has led to her completing her first YA novel Much Ado About Something, co-authored with Sarah Hyson.
This is her second reading at MAC – she is very excited.
