Jackson Gay is a freelance theater director, writer, and co-Producing Artistic Director of

Jackson has taught directing and acting at Williams, Yale, New School, Sarah Lawrence, and Columbia. Jackson is working with Wendy Weckwerth on a book project and is a 2021 Guild Hall Artist-in-Residence in East Hampton, NY. Jackson and New Neighborhood recently joined forces with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater and The Commissary to produce Why Would I Dare: The Trial of Crystal Mason. In collaboration with Dan Butler and DMNDR, New Neighborhood produced the first 24-hour reading of Filibustered and Unfiltered: America Reads the Mueller Report which inspired more than a dozen other events across the country. Featured everywhere from the Los Angeles Times (“a live-theater summer sensation!”) to Breitbart News (“the single most boring and pointless way to waste your time!”), the tidal wave of public readings reached its apex when it was name-checked in Congress during Robert Mueller’s nationally televised public testimony.
