Although I traveled some, I didn't live outside of Texas until 2014. In fact, the first eighteen years of my life were spent in a tiny rural town near the Gulf Coast outside of Houston: a farming and ranching community of Czech immigrant-descendants that boasted a tightly contained citizenry and an infinite wet-cotton horizon--perfect for an introspective observer to escape into stories and to dream of both the imagined and real world beyond.
“Erin … [has] an incredible storytelling ability."
~Danielle Ozymandias, co-Artistic Director (2016-17)
“Erin ... has a commanding presence on stage. She is lovely to watch, tall, and her craft is subtle and remarkable. … [She is] the reason I go to theatre - to see the gems."
~Joe Straw, review of "Red Velvet"
“[Erin is] HILARIOUS at times and beautifully touching at others."
~Marjorie LeWitt, Director

Bouquets for Bijeux
The world premiere of my brief play, "QUICK CHANGE," garnered a number of accolades at the Short + Sweet Hollywood theatre festival this past October!
The Bijeux Collective celebrates on the red carpet after the FINALS ROUND performance of "Quick Change" at the Short+Sweet Hollywood Festival on October 29, 2022. L to R: Kseniya Babayeva, Tessie Herrasti, Erin Elizabeth Reed, Joanna DeLeon & Deanna Nicole Shinsky.
Produced in collaboration with the Bijeux Collective--an all-female independent theatre group with cross-cultural heritage and a passion for out-of-the-box stories and forms--"Quick Change" was honored in festival competition with being named a:
Judges' Choice Finalist; and
People's Choice Semi-Finalist.
What's more, our very own Deanna Nicole Shinsky was nominated for the inaugural Actors' Circle Award (which honors the best individual performers without resorting to gendered subcategories)!
As the Writer / Director, I couldn't be more proud of all our efforts!
