Bio: R. Barron is in finance by day and, more often than not, a theatre seat by night. R. dabbles in writing and directing, with particular focus on issues of justice, queer and trans experience, and systems of control (incarceration, constitutional theory, family, religion, and political representation, among others). R. is an Artistic Connector with Other Voices Theatre and the Other Voices Calendar (http://localendar.com/public/othervoices), a new project that seeks to promote stories from underrepresented voices in theatre.
