Terry McCabe has directed plays professionally in the Chicago area for more than twenty years, winning two Jefferson citations and a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh International Arts Festival. He studied theatre at Indiana and Northwestern universities and now teaches directing and other theatre classes at Columbia College in Chicago. He lives in Evanston, Illinois.
