Rachel Greene is a Boston-based theatre artist with an enthusiasm for creating all types of challenging, engaging, explosive works of theatre. She is primarily a performer but also works as an educator and a playwright. Rachel holds a degree in Theater Arts from Brandeis University and has also studied classical acting at Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s Acting Apprentice Academy.
As an actor, Rachel has a particular passion for exploring and portraying and the powerful women of Shakespeare and other Early Modern and classical plays. She searches for opportunities to use her theatre-making to reclaim the narratives of women who are too often neglected in their time or context. Rachel explored this recently as an actor and playwright in Margaret My Name, her original adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry VI parts I, II, III, and Richard III, refocused on the titular Queen Margaret of Anjou.
