(AKA My Bio)

Kittson O'Neill is a Philadelphia theater maker. As a director last summer she created a groundbreaking  production of Coriolanus for Shakespeare in Clark Park, which featured an all female professional cast working with a chorus of 45 community members playing the Citizens of Rome. It was the most attended show in the history of the company. Other directing credits include: Uncle Vanya for Hedgerow Theater, The Winter's Tale for Shakespeare in Clark Park, A Knee That Can Bend (Barrymore Nomination - Best Director) for Orbiter 3,  The Three Christs of Manhattan (World Premier, co-directed with Seth Rozin) at InterAct, On The Verge at Hedgerow and We Can All Agree To Pretend This Never Happened for Tiny Dynamite. As an actor she has worked on dozens of stages around Philadelphia and beyond including Interact, The Lantern, Gas and Electric Arts, Act II Playhouse, South Coast Repertory, The Public, People's Light and Theater Company and Second Stage. Favorite recent roles include Margery in Hand to God at Boise Contemporary Theater, The Pilot in Grounded  at InterAct (Barrymore Nomination - Best Actress), Aphra Behn in Or at Hedgerow, and Mr. Doctor in The Body Lautrec with Mary Tuomanen and Aaron Cromie. She has appeared in dozens of commercials, films and television shows, including Jenny Perlin's international installation piece, Mimeograph, Outsiders, Those Who Kill , Aftermath (with Arnold Schwarzenegger) and the upcoming Upside (With Nicole Kidman and Bryan Cranston). She studied with The Shakespeare Lab at The Public, The Actors Center in New York and the Milwaukee Repertory Theater. She is currently the Artistic Director of Shakespeare in Clark Park, Philadelphia's largest outdoor theater event, and Artistic Associate at InterAct Theatre Company where she created the Core Writers program and oversees all new play development. Prior to that she was the Literary Manager for New Jersey Repertory theater where she curated a robust reading series of over 20 plays per year and oversaw numerous world and US premiers. She frequently dramaturgs for Playpenn, Philadelphia's leading new play development conference.
Here are some nice things other people have said about me


   "Kittson O’Neill embodies this dynamic free spirit, a party girl and dissatisfied subject (“I’m so sick of pictures of my breasts,” she complains) until photography (and a fiery affair with Man Ray) opens her eyes. The play covers numerous events and drops many names, but through O’Neill’s unfettered performance, we ride the highs of her loves and fame, the lows of her World War II combat photography and alcoholism, and the too-contemporary problems of a woman living boldly in a man’s world. " - MARK COFTA


    "And it boasts a dynamic lead performance by Kittson O'Neill, who, like the real Lee Miller, grabs your attention and never lets go.

     O'Neill, who is only offstage for one minute during a show that lasts nearly two hours, plays Miller with a confident delivery, a brash manner, an insistent gaze, and a sly, knowing smile. She does a superb job of conveying Miller's bracing intelligence and confident sexuality. Stalking the stage wearing costume designer Charlotte Cloe Fox Wind's white pantsuit (and sometimes wearing nothing at all), she portrays a Lee Miller who won't be satisfied until all her hungers are satisfied, but knows they never will be." - TIM DUNLEAVY
