Megan Cole is a founding member of Cerimon House, having collaborated with Randall Stuart over a span of 20 years on several artful projects. Megan’s work in both the American regional repertory theatre and the worlds of science, spans four decades. She always thought she’d be a professional musician, either a flutist or pianist. But then at Lawrence University, from which she graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, she wandered one day into the Theater department, where she found an antidote for her own shyness. The classical stage became her life-long career, attended in recent years by occasional forays into television guest roles. The most important and award-winning role of her stage career was that of Vivian Bearing in the world premiere of Margaret Edson’s play Wit. In 2000, after performing the play (in a third production) at Houston’s Alley Theater, Megan, at the request of the directors of University of Texas/Houston Health Science Center, began to develop a course that proposed applying various skills from the profession of theater to the practice of medicine. Megan tours her production of The Wisdom of WIT throughout the United States, and most recently shared it at Cerimon House in May, 2012.
