Matriarch By Miriam Tabb, Directed by Jean-Pierre Barthelemy

Miriam Tabb

Miriam Tabb, actress, writer, director, and small business owner of Life Noted, has the amazing ability to get the most personal story out of anyone.  Her sensitive awareness and empathy for people, relationships, and the world around her is the reason Miriam became a trained actress to re-enact important moments in life, onstage.  Graduating from The City College of New York with a BA in Theatre, Miriam took her love for stories a step further to act, write, and direct moving pieces that honor the human spirit.  Portraying, creating, and shaping characters onstage in productions like Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, James Baldwin’sAmen Corner, Trevor Rhone’s Two Can Play, her own Turning Points documentary drama, and much more have refined her love of stories to an art form.  Miriam has added spoken word to her repertoire over the last few years, performing in NYC venues. Her most recent work reflects that experience through its poetic language. Matriarch is one woman’s personal journey of her pursuit of motherhood, and Miriam is proud it is debuting at The 7 Collective’s 7 Day Festival.
