Howdy and welcome! I don’t know how you found my website but it’s awesome you’re here.

Born and bred in the farming community of Porterville, CA, ANDREA MOCK has received four grants for her creative work from the Flora and William Hewlett and Zellerbach Foundations. From 1996 to 2002 as writer-in-residence as the Speakeasy Theater, MOCK penned and performed plays and solo shows: First Time, Brain_In_A Box, Jane Austen in Berkeley and Age of Enlightenment. In 2015 MOCK funded by a grant from ODC SF, crafted choreography using novel-writing techniques. The resulting pieces went on to win ODC San Francisco’s “Take 5” choreography competition. One of the pieces became the basis for THE MOBY DICK DIARIES finale, Call Me Ishwhale.
