Writer, actor, videographer; founder and artistic director of the Globe Radio Repertory.   Jean’s  productions ran on NPR Playhouse in the 80’s and early 90’s, playing on member stations all over the country.

The Globe Radio Repertory was founded in Seattle in 1982 to bring the classics of world literature to a new and wider audience. Radio was chosen as medium because it communicates best the essential qualities of classical literature.

The Globe produced four major series over the next decade, beginning with Don Quixote, and subsequently, Dead Souls, Madame Bovary, and last, 16 Stories by Anton Chekhov. Each dramatization was adapted by writer John Siscoe in collaboration with writer/director Jean Sherrard.
