Megan Tabaque is a theater artist who cut her teeth in realism of the Chicago theater scene and thereafter in the experimental punk dens of Austin, Texas. Her playwriting aesthetic often imposes the spectacular on suburban subcultures and explores multi-ethnic identity. She is a graduate of the Michener Center for Writers. 


Tabaque is a multi-ethnic Filipina-Canadian playwright, actor, and director. Her plays have been produced or developed by Salvage Vanguard Theater, Tofte Lake Center, Paper Chairs, InFusion, 20% Theater, and Tympanic among others. Tabaque has performed on storefront and AEA stages across Austin, Chicago, and north Florida. She is a James A. Michener Fellow, Kundiman Fiction Fellow, Sewanee Writers' Conference Scholar, Tofte Lake resident, Seattle Public Theater Emerald Prize finalist, Austin Critics' Table nominee, and a company member of Salvage Vanguard Theater. She has her MFA in Playwriting and Fiction from the James A. Michener Center for Writers in Austin, TX. She grew up in the wilds of central Florida and currently resides in an adobe flat in the Santa Fe desert. Tabaque is a visiting faculty member at Bennington for Fall 2020.
