Maureen Gallagher returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where she appeared in the Short Shakespeare! productions of Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet. Other Chicago credits include: David Copperfield, The Infidel (Steppenwolf Theatre Company); The Winter’s Tale (Goodman Theatre); The Cripple of Inishmaan (Northlight Theatre); Hannah Free (Victory Gardens Theater); Macbeth, Measure for Measure and Love’s Labor’s Lost (Court Theatre). Regional credits include: All My Sons (Cardinal Stage Company); The Comedy of Errors, Cymbeline and Romeo and Juliet (Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival). Film credits include Mercury Rising and Road to Perdition. Maureen studied at Syracuse University and the Goodman School of Drama. An adjunct professor of theatre at Prairie State College, Maureen also volunteers as a writing tutor at 826 Chicago—and she writes plays. What she says she loves most about acting Shakespeare is “how the audience gets caught up in the story.”
