“A gifted writer, a skilled actress and a superb storyteller, Bernadette Nason’s beautifully crafted stories are works of art that touch your heart, and make you think, question, laugh and cry, all at the same time. A remarkable blend of honesty, grace and glee, she’s a consummate professional.”

Dr. Judy Matetzschk, Artistic Director, Pollyanna Theatre Company

Bernadette Nason hails from England, lives in Austin, and performs all over the world. She’s a multiple award-winning storyteller, writer, actress, and considers herself as a bit of a humorist too. She’s been on the Texas Commission on the Arts Texas Touring Roster since 2002, telling tales annually to over 30,000 students, Pre-K through high school.

Bernadette is a company member of Austin Playhouse and ONSTAGE Theatre; resident artist with Pollyanna Theatre Co; and former associate artist with Austin Shakespeare Festival. She belongs to Actors’ Equity and the Screen Actors’ Guild, and is regularly seen in regional theatre productions, one-woman shows, and movies.

Bernadette’s first memoir, TEA IN TRIPOLI, will soon be released. Sign up on the Contacts page for up-to-date NEWS on its publication. In the meantime, she has begun her second memoir, DINNER IN DUBAI, about life in the United Arab Emirates when it was still mostly desert. Watch this space!


Bernadette’s been scribbling her whole life, but the blog got started back in 2011, by popular request. Actually, no one asked. She’s just got a lot to say. Of course, there’s never enough time to say it all. “I’ll blog at least once a week,” she tells herself. She’s working on that. Watch this space. In the meantime, click below to read earlier masterpieces about life in Austin, Texas, or her travels around the USA and other far-flung parts of our precious planet.
