Mark Kenward, a Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Nominee and two-time selection for the Best of San Francisco Solo Series, has performed his work in over 40 cities throughout the US and Canada, including a reception for The House of Representatives and several runs at The Marsh.

Kenward is the creator and performer of eight solo shows, receiving kudos as “a commanding storyteller” and “a master of the craft”. The Contra Costa Times hailed his most recent show Nantucket as “astonishing, funny, and breathtaking.” Kenward is the director of over 30 full-length solo shows, including four that have had runs at The Marsh: Kurt Bodden’s Steve Seabrook: Better Than You, Howard Petrick’s Rambo: The Missing Years, David Kleinberg’s Hey, Hey, LBJ!, and Houston Robertson’s Victory for the Recycled Virgin.  Other directing credits include Wayne Harris’s Tyrone ‘Short Leg’ Johnson and Some White Boys and David Caggiano’s Jurassic Ark, both of which won ‘Best of SF Fringe’ honors.  Kenward regularly teaches one-day Telling Your Story workshops and eight-week The Elements of Solo Performance classes.  He is currently the Director of Artist Relations & Special Projects at The Marsh.
