eg is an OBIE award winning actor, producer, and writer raised and based in New York City, where she lives with her husband and two kids.

Her love of new plays was fostered at Brown University (thank you Paula Vogel!), and in grad school at UC San Diego. Regionally she's been honored to be directed by Garland Wright (The Guthrie), James Lapine (La Jolla Playhouse), and Les Waters (Mandel Weiss Forum). In New York, Meg originated roles in plays by Adam Bock, Ann Marie Healy, Ethan Lipton, Gina Gionfriddo, and Chiori Miyagawa, and worked with notable directors Pam MacKinnon, Ken Rus Schmoll, David Herskovits, and Trip Cullman.

Meg won an OBIE for her performance in Rinne Groff's What Then, directed by Hal Brooks. In presenting the award, Oscar Eustis, artistic director of The Public Theater, said she "awaken[ed] the judges to her graceful, luminous performance."

Meg co-founded the critically acclaimed theater company Clubbed Thumb, and served as co-artistic director for 13 years. In 2009, Meg moved on from Clubbed Thumb in order to act full time. She is a member of the artist collective Five on a Match.

Lately she has worked frequently with Target Margin and Little Lord, playing nutty roles in wildly creative pieces. She's learned Yiddish, covered her face in peanut butter, sashayed across the boards in a tutu, sung a drunken sea shanty. At The Roundabout she covered both leading ladies in Dinner With Friends and was delighted to go on seven times. In one crazy stretch, she went on 6 times in 5 days, alternating between Karen and Beth.

Her sadistic Queen Isabella appears in the latest episode of Jayson Musson's popular web series The Adventures of Jamel: The Time Traveling B-Boy. She played Elizabeth in Seen / By Everyone, a new play she co-wrote and co-produced at HERE and was subsequently produced by Theater of Yugen in San Francisco.

Most recently Meg plays Meg, the harried reality show producer in Shrinkage, available on Amazon Prime, and…Meg in Skinnamarink at New York Theatre Workshop/Next Door.

Over quarantine she produced and starred in the audio drama Split Valley, available on Apple Podcasts; played a wealthy woman interested in dating Andrew Cuomo in the live Zoom play The Second Wife; played an influencer with rage issues in the web series The Drive-Thru Therapist, and wrote and starred in "Care and Feeding", a 7-minute musical about mothering directed by Vivienne Benesch and produced by Lisa Loeb.
