Allen studied and performed with the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, California both in the Young Conservatory and the New Plays Program where she originated the roles of Shambahla in Constance Congdon's "Automata Pieta" and Rebecca in Timothy Mason's "Time on Fire."
Writer and Producer
Allen's short plays have been produced at the Elephant Theatre Company, Los Angeles, and she has recently optioned her first screenplay about a dead brother, a dead girlfriend and an unlikely life affirming friendship. Currently, Allen is in production on a documentary called "Forever Love," capturing her personal quest to understand or, at least, gain a deeper clarity on what "Forever Love" actually means anymore by way of both intense self-scrutiny and interviewing other relationships, authors, and experts.
Allen is a singer-songwriter and ukulele player, currently performing in two bands: "Bomb Your Face" (a melodramatic, experimental folk duo) and "Socks and Chimes" (a Bear and a Pixie singing quirky love duets).
