Jocelyn is an actor and a producer. She is grateful to everyone working so hard to realize A Simple Herstory. She is a three-time Princess Grace Award nominated performer, and a founder and the actor-in-residence of the Drama Desk Award nominated & Lucille Lortel Award winning immersive theater company, Woodshed Collective. Jocelyn is the creator of The Muse Project, dedicated to centering and spotlighting women theater actors; and she is also the creator of Staging Film, an experimental cross-medium initiative. Onstage, Jocelyn mostly works on new plays and new theatrical forms; and, as a performer, she has become a favorite among New York's downtown theater stalwarts, often portraying intense, fragile, and feral characters. She has appeared in more than 20 NYC productions, including multiple premieres and appearances with companies like the Obie Award winning collective, 13 Playwrights, and her company, Woodshed Collective. Papermag calls her an "outstanding actor." Onscreen, new media and film appearances include A Little Dream, The Bad Infinity, Domesticity (Discover.film Awards Best Micro Drama), Over The River and Through The Woods, Peace After Marriage (Montpellier Mediterranean Film Festival Audience Award), others. She is currently featured in two pieces produced by Play For Voices, a podcast series showcasing international plays; and she is the voice of the Grand Cuspid in The Fall Of The House Of Sunshine, a serialized comedy musical podcast (one of only 4 narrative podcasts from The Sunday Times’s 100 of the Best Podcasts to Listen to in 2019). www.jocelynkuritsky.com.
