Mary Finch (called “Finch” by all the cool kids) earned her BA in English Education, but prolonged her education by enrolling in the MLitt/MFA Shakespeare & Performance program at Mary Baldwin University. Since then, she has directed She Stoops to Conquer for the MBU Theatre Dept., several staged readings, and a small scale production of Marlowe’s Faustus. In addition to her theatrical work, Finch swing dances, experiments with painting, and dotes on her fish, Mefishtopheles.
