Hemmendy
Hemmendy Nelson: Co-Founder

Hemmendy Nelson was born in Denmark, growing up in Italy and Belgium before spending her high school years in Rhode Island. Prior to moving to New York City, she lived in Chicago with a brief stint in Scotland. Favorite roles include Roxane in Cyrano de Bergerac, Paulina in Death and the Maiden, Oneida in Cyber Womb. She can be seen in the documentary “Casting About,” currently making the film festival rounds (e.g., Sydney, Toronto, Chicago, Boston). She received her BFA in Theatre Arts from Illinois Wesleyan University. This is Hemmendy’s first foray into writing for the stage. She happily retired her waitress’ apron years ago and is currently working with a music licensing company. A variety of temp job experiences promise to find their way into her one-woman show one day. She got her name from her Swedish grandmother.
