Lily Odekirk ’18
Albright Fellow 2017

Lily Odekirk
Lillian is a junior from Charleston, West Virginia majoring in English and Theatre Studies.

She interned for the American Shakespeare Society in 2015. This past summer, she made her professional acting debut with the Wellesley Repertory Theatre and soon after traveled to Iceland, where she researched and wrote about the country’s theatrical practices. She returned home to work for the West Virginia Department of Commerce. On campus, Lillian acts as an active member of the Wellesley College Shakespeare Society and is currently directing a production for Upstage Theatre. Her interests lie in applying classical theatre to modern social justice issues and in using the art form as a means for education and empowerment on local and global scales. Her goal upon graduation is to pursue a graduate degree in classical theatre and continue to serve the community through the international art of telling stories on the stage.
