Jessica Ma is a recent graduate of SMU’s BFA program and Milwaukee Rep’s Acting Residency. Favorite roles: Crystal in Bethany, Judy Chen (u/s) in Junk, and Afong Moy (u/s) in The Chinese Lady. As a literary reader for Milwaukee, her favorite plays last year were Lily Padilla’s How to Defend Yourself and Ming Peiffer’s Usual Girls.
