Jessica Huang. Oct. 22, 2011.

Jessica Renee Huang writes plays cross-legged on the kitchen floor, often wearing one sock and chewing her cuticles. She and her laptop have survived higher education at the University of Missouri, a melodramatic stint in Phoenix and now write together in assorted Minneapolis diners and bars. Jessica used 10 of her 15 minutes on her short play Mermaids, which won the regional KCACTF ten-minute play award and was performed at the Kennedy Center at the national festival. Mermaids manifested most recently at 2G’s Free Range festival in New York City, now a creature of its own free will. Jessica cofounded the Unit Collective to contend with her multi-cultural confusion; she is a Many Voices Fellow and punch-pleased to call the Playwrights’ Center home
