Biography

Sarah Jones (b. November 29, 1973) is a Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright, actress, and poet. Called “a master of the genre” by The New York Times, Jones has written and performed four multi-character solo shows, including Bridge & Tunnel, which was produced Off-Broadway in 2004 by Oscar-winner Meryl Streep, and which went on to Broadway in 2006 and received a special Tony Award.

Jones was born in Baltimore, Maryland to an African American father and mother of mixed Euro-American and Caribbean descent. Her multicultural background and upbringing in Boston, Washington DC, and Queens, New York, influenced her development into what The New Yorker termed a “multicultural mynah bird lays our mongrel nation before us with gorgeous, pitch-perfect impersonations of the rarely heard or dramatized.”

Jones attended The United Nations International School and Bryn Mawr College where she was the recipient of the Mellon Minority Fellowship. She originally planned a career as a lawyer, but left college early and eventually found her way to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, NYC, where she began competing in poetry slams and won the citywide Grand Slam Championship in 1997, then began developing monologues based on her poetry which she performed in character.
