a bit about Trisha:

Trisha Mahoney is an American editor, writer, and dramaturg living in Cologne, Germany after serving as a Young Ambassador in the Congress-Bundestag Young Professionals Exchange. She hearkens from the great, wild world of Nashua, New Hampshire but has since lived in Chicago, Dresden, and now Cologne. Trisha is a graduate of the Dramaturgy/Criticism program at the Theatre School at DePaul University where she has served as the dramaturg for such shows as Mr. Burns:  A Post-Electric Play, Crime and Punishment, Prospero's Storm, and Cat in the Hat. Whether serving as a dramaturg or editing the latest article, Trisha is invested in finding creative ways to tell research-based stories effectively. 


She has had the opportunity to meet and interview Academy Award-winning Tarrell Alvin McCraney in a talkback while serving as the dramaturg for The Theatre School's production of Wig Out.  In 2017, she worked with Off-Broadway playwright Mickle Mahr on his new play, Michael Jordan in Lilliput. Most recently, she has been working in Dresden, Germany at the Semperoper as a Dramaturgy and Education intern while also assisting on their new production of Die Verkaufte Braut as a Directing Assistant. 


Besides dramaturgy, Trisha has also worked extensively in the intersection of theatre, writing, and education. She served as an Educational Programming Intern for 826CHI, as an Education Intern at Compass Creative Dramatics, and later, assisted with the Education Department's programming at the Semperoper. With an avid interest in theatre criticism, she worked for three years as the Editor-in-Chief of The Grappler, a student-led dramaturgy-centered online publication, and now serves as an Associate Editor with The Theater Times. Additionally, she has spent the last three years honing her viral editing and writing skills working as a freelance editor and author as well as working at one of the leading producers of family-friendly content at Social Sweethearts. Whether working in theater, editing, teaching or mentoring, Trisha stays active in engaging critically and consciously with content that she and audiences are passionate about. 


When not in the theatre, Trisha can be found Lindy Hop, East Coast Swing, and Blues dancing around town.
