Holly Robison

Holly Robison ​is thrilled to have the good fortune to perform with the lovely ladies of Improvised Jane Austen. Holly has been living and working in Chicago for several years, both as an actor, improviser, and director. Favorite roles include Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, Chris in Dancing At Lughnasa, Ellen in In the Wake, Jo in Independence, and Martha in The Children’s Hour. She is currently currently directing Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband with Ghostlight Ensemble Theatre Company, of which she is a founding member and Co-Artistic Director. In the past, she has also directed A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as well as several smaller productions. She has studied with various Chicago organizations, including Remy Bumppo, TUTA Theatre, Victory Gardens, Second City and First Folio Technique and Chekhov with Susan Hart and Jeffrey Carlson. Additionally, she completed the summer program, A Practical Approach to Directing, at Yale School of Drama. When not performing or directing, she can probably be found reading, watching British costume dramas, eating too much Indian food, and/or talking to her cat (don’t judge, ok?).
