Under The Jello Mold is Jennie Fahn’s solo comedy about how she dealt with her very colorful character of a mother during what turned out to be the final act of her mother’s life. Jennie’s mother was a force to be reckoned with: a former dancer, never content to merely rehash her past, there was always a story to be embellished, always a name to drop, and always a lesson to teach. As it turned out, not only did her mom hide her postmortem instructions in a very specific spot, she was also hiding a long-held secret. Told in anecdotes, characters, and song, the show has proven to be highly relatable to audiences.

Jennie Fahn is a writer, an actor, and a mom. Originally from New York, she’s now proud to call Los Angeles her adopted city. Fahn’s latest one-woman show, Under the Jello Mold, premiered at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival, where it won Best Solo Performance and Producer’s Encore awards. She developed the show into a screenplay, which was a semi–finalist in the Diverse Voices Screenwriting Contest, and a runner-up in the Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition. Fahn has been cast on screen in Gloria Bell and ABC’s The Middle, and you can catch her in re-runs of Heroes and Will and Grace, to name a few.
