On Ithaca: 'A goddess... astounding depth of insight and pure talent.'
Originally from San Francisco, Phoebe Angeni is an emerging, critically acclaimed international artist. Angeni trained intensively at both RADA in London and at the Stella Adler Studio in New York, simultaneously graduating from the University of St Andrews, Scotland, with a 2.1 BA Honours and dissertation Performing the Divine Feminine: Women, Theatre, and Social Change.
Angeni is most known for her renditions of fiercely feminist characters. The energy she brings to the room is professional, wholehearted, rebellious, whimsical, playful, powerful and kind. She is passionate about experimental and boundary-pushing material, especially in classical, epic, fantasy, and dramatic genres.
Angeni is known for her one-woman shows, which explore and address contemporary socio-political issues in mythological settings. Her latest piece, Ithaca, an autobiographical adaptation of Homer's Odyssey, received five star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, praise from Lyn Gardner, and featured two weeks running in Scotland's national newspaper, The Scotsman. Ithaca is currently in redevelopment. For more information please Click Here.
Angeni is also a poet. Her debut collection of 99 poems, Longitudes & Latitudes, was published in March 8, 2023 with Gatekeeper Press. Longitudes & Latitudes highlights nature and relationships through its irreverently playful and experimental style, witchy feminist energy, and literary-fourth-wall-breaking intimacy.
A textbook workaholic, Angeni values her contributions on both sides of the curtain as an Assistant Director and Production Assistant for Stage Management. Her most recent credits include Assistant Director of Sleeping Beauty at the Presidio Theatre, and Director/Project Manager of Presidio Theatre's short holiday performance at the San Francisco Symphony (Deck the Hall).
