Josie Peterson


I am an actress and a writer who worked on stage in Manhattan for about 13 years, and had my classical play Tristan & Isolde produced in town during the summer of 2010, along with debuting some of my comedic material found in Evelyn Dunbar and Other Comedies. I also had the pleasure of working on two of the smartest and well-acted independent films, while I was busy on the off-off Broadway boards in New York from 1997--2010. These films were the feature Beyond the Pale and the short Morning Fall.

Various brief videos of my work can be seen on my You Tube Channel, TheJosiePeterson. One of my early one act plays, Alpha & Omega, may be gotten hold of and read via the special collections department at Stanford University Library in California.

For next year, I hope to create a few new and interesting videos of my long-form comic monologues, and have them available to all via YouTube.
