I grew up in Texas. Lost the accent sometime in high school (thank you, Ms. Lewis). I am now based in Brooklyn, NY. Most of the projects I do are with my theatre company Loading Dock Theatre that I formed with my husband: playwright Leegrid Stevens.
Ms Julie, Asian Equities
by Leegrid Stevens
Took on the role of Julie in Leegrid Stevens adaptation of August Strindberg’s Miss Julie, where aristocrats and servants were replaced with high caliber bankers and the janitorial staff, exploring themes of class and forbidden romance against a timely contemporary backdrop. Brave New World Rep’s site specific production was staged on a state-of-the-art functional trading floor at the Brooklyn Academy of Global Finance in Bed-Stuy.

I played Mayo Methot, Bogie's alcoholic, troubled wife in this epic, inside-out theatrical imagining of the making of Casablanca, written by Sara Farrington and directed and designed by Reid Farrington. Commissioned by The HARP Program at HERE Arts Center. The movie serves as the spine from which a myriad of stories branch off. Employing simple wooden canvas flats and a large cast, CasablancaBox is a full film set onstage. Inspired by a roving camera style, the piece captures everyone's story, from the most famous players to the hundreds of real-life European refugees who peopled the “atmosphere” of Rick’s Café Americain.
"Methot (Erin Treadway) and (Roger) Casey act a painful scene together beautifully"
-- Time Out New York
"One of the interesting touches is the appearance of Humphrey Bogart’s abusive, alcoholic, actress wife, Mayo Methot (well played by Erin Treadway).
-- Theatre Scene
"And if you’ve never given the tragic Methot (a luminous Erin Treadway) a second thought, or even a first one, chances are she’ll haunt you and any future glimpses of Bogart you might enjoy."
-- The Village Voice
