Peggy Gannon
I’ve been a working actress, director and producer in Seattle since 1994. I’m one of the Producing Directors at MAP Theatre, where I’ve directed many MAP shows (Year of the Rooster; Belleville; Soft Click of a Switch; and A Behanding in Spokane). Much of my energy in the past several years was willingly spent on fortifying the future of the 18th & Union Arts Space as the Interim Executive Director, where I’m now Board President. Also a shout-out to another of my long-time creative homes: The 14/48 Projects, where I am also a Board Member. I’m thankful that Brandon Ryan invited me to produce with him about 15 years ago. Limitless gratitude and love to Mark Boeker for his patience and for creating such a comforting home to return to.
