Phoebe Lloyd

Class of 2023


Phoebe Lloyd was born in a 450 square foot East Village apartment at the dawn of the new century. The year they turned five their family moved to Northampton Massachusetts, dragging a kicking and screaming Phoebe along with them. They spent their formative years in the rolling countryside at an underfunded and energetic performing arts highschool. Had it not been for their acceptance to Carnegie Mellon University, Phoebe would have taken a gap year and tried to make it as a standup comic, but fate spared us all.

Phoebe is now shocked and honored to call themself a “highly trained dramatic actor”, and “passable screenwriter”. Looking back over their years at CMU they only regret not having time to be on the Ultimate Frisbee team. Luckily, Suzuki and Viewpoints are kind of like a team sport. 

If they could work on any TV show it would be a mashup of Atlanta, Euphoria, Mean Girls, and Twelfth Night – don’t look at me like that, this could totally exist. Their favorite play they have ever been in is Blood at the Root by Dominique Morriseau, but Real Girls -a new play by Beth Ann Powers they workshoped at CMU- was a close second. When they devise work, they like to walk the line between absurdity and reality. Phoebe loves to meet new people, push their limits, and be surprised. They hope to make beautiful things, if you also feel this way, they hope to work with you.
