Gleason’s creative practice focuses on directing. She tends to pursue projects that engage the mythic and challenge audiences by communicating through the body. In recent years she has also discovered a love for directing comedy and musical theatre, finding the rigors of timing a joke or a musical number an exciting test of her skills. Furthermore, her commitment to work on new plays and championing new voices in theatre as both a director and a dramaturg are central to her dedication to theatre as a tool for social justice. Finally, when the opportunity arises she enjoys designing sets or costumes.
