Polistina (‘15) was an active member of Greenwich High School’s drama program, performing in shows from King Lear to Rent. She also was a four-year playwright in the department’s annual Magic Circle, a production where students write and direct their own original works of theater.

Polistina went on to the University of Connecticut where she graduated with a B.F.A. in acting in 2019.

The Nosebleed team includes fellow GHS alum, including Polistina’s classmate Grace Barber (‘15). The play also marks Polistina’s second appearance at Rogue Theatre Festival.

Her first original play, Annies and Kleptos, made its New York City debut right before the pandemic, and she looks forward to a triumphant return to the festival.

Tickets can be purchased here, and donations to the show can be submitted here.
