1995- TORRY FLACK made her stage debut in a production of “The Outsiders” at The Black Hawk Children’s Theatre in Waterloo, Iowa. She proudly changed her character’s name from “kid in church fire” to “Becky.” Thus igniting an accompanying writing career.

1995ish-2010ish- (This entry has been removed and saved for a one-woman show about a hopeless little church mouse/Midwestern girl who struggles to embrace herself and her relationship with Art, her father. Dates and venue and script and guts and whether or not it will be a “Comedy” TBD)

May 2010- TRY FLACK graduated from The University of Iowa with a B.A. in English, Theatre Arts, and Maybe Teaching.

Aug 2010- TORY FLACTOR moved to Chicago and cried a lot and trained at the Second City and Annoyance theaters. The actor did some sketch comedy too, and did indeed teach a lot of theatre, but mostly cried into an out-of-tune 5 string guitar and stared out over Lake Michigan and wished she was a bird so she could just fly dammit.

June 2013- TRYS FLACKTING moved to NYC with her boyfriend and everyone was like, “oh she’s just following her boyfriend,” and so she decided to commit. Lots of training (Anthony Abeson, Movement Theatre Studio, The Funny School of Good Acting, UCB), some plays, a few commercials and a couple tv shows later, things have been going really well. She has a personality.

@flacktory is currently training with Anthony Abeson, auditioning for roles like “daughter with an opinion,” “vendor girl” and “young mom who either murders or gets murdered,” modeling for guys she meets in bars I guess, fashioning a scarf that will carry both of her cats at the same time like babies, and writing overreaching sentences.
