Emma Pauly

Emma Pauly is thrilled to be working with Court Theater for the first time on the Oedipus trilogy. A member of Prop Thtr’s dramaturg pool, her recent Chicago dramaturgy credits include Pop Magic Productions’ Medusa and sections of RhinoFest 2019, both of which also featured Emma’s translations of Ovid’s Metamorphoses and selections from the Homeric and Orphic Hymns. Their queer-facing translation of Euripides’ Bacchae has received readings in Los Angeles, Chicago and the UK. Emma is a recent graduate of the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School’s International MA and studied Classics and TAPS at the University of Chicago. She was selected to participate in the Kennedy Center New Play Intensive this summer, where she served as an assistant dramaturg on Polaris by Charles Green.
