Phoebe Anne Taylor

as “Jane Porter”

Phoebe Anne Taylor is a Melbourne based theatre maker, actor and writer. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours (Creative Writing, University of Melbourne) and Honours (Performance, Monash University) and was a graduate of the inaugural Full Time ensemble of the Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia.

In 2019, Phoebe became an alumni of the Arteles Creative Centre in Finland, having completed the Silence Awareness Existence residency. She was awarded runner up for her work in the 2020 Alpine Fellowship International Theatre Writing prize, and has had work produced at La Mama and the Butterfly Club.

Phoebe’s interest in new Australian writing largely leads her to focus any directing work in fields of development and exploration, most recently working with Georgie Harriss on Love Bird, Keith Gow on Turn, Turn, Turn and Mark Salvestro on The Will to Be and Buried at Sea.

Phoebe is also a producer for Incognita Enterprises; their series Shakespeare Republic, of which she is also an ensemble member, is internationally recognised, acclaimed and awarded, and finished 2021 in the top 10 of international web series for that year.

Phoebe’s passion for the theatre and storytelling leaves her with many creative avenues, of which she finds there is not enough time, but keeps trying to find ways to do it all anyway. Phoebe is represented by Who Artists.
