Ariel Mary Ann

Ariel Mary Ann is a local theatre artist and native of the Cincinnati area. Since she was a child, Ariel knew she wanted to be a storyteller. After entering college in 2016, Ariel used that opportunity to immerse herself in the world of theatre, from performing in CCM’s Transmigration Festival two years in a row, to collaborating with the Know Theatre through The One Minute Play Festival as an actor and playwright. Her work often explores issues of racism, gender, and what it means to be truly vulnerable.

As a Black, queer, trans theatre artist, Ariel’s mission is to provide a space for those who’ve been pushed to the margins by society at large. She believes that theatre can be used for change and is excited to be collaborating with EdTA as a playwright for Finding Voice.
