Welcome! I'm Laura Bernas.
I'm a creative goofball with a penchant for magically realistic plays, devised theater, and fearless acting. I love new plays, reimagined classics, and dynamic screen dramedies. I'm a huge nerd with an eye for sophisticated elegance. Think Beanie Feldstein meets Kate Winslet...I am that love child.
I hold a MFA in Acting from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England and have trained at the Moscow Art Theatre School and Sarah Lawrence College.
Working across multiple mediums while collaborating with international companies forms the cornerstone of my career.
