Allison Shoemaker is the Artistic Director and a founding member of The Ruckus, she is damn proud to say. Directing credits for The Ruckus include Little Triggers, 15 Minutes, Heist Play, The Gay American, and the thing with the iPods. Outside the Ruckusverse, Allison has directed for Choosing to Be Here at the Side Project, Deliver Us From Nowhere with Tympanic, and Fresh Eyes Project 2012 at Red Tape, as well as assisting Eric Hoff on Red Tape’s production of The Skriker, which was awesome. She also, very briefly, pretended to be an actor for Curious Theatre Branch’s production of Jet Black Chevrolet.  When not fighting for truth, justice, and the right of the playwright to revise in the rehearsal room, Allison writes things that sometimes get published. She likes that, too, but she likes this more.
