An actress and singer based in London, Jenna Augen recently starred in London's West End as Daphna in Joshua Harmon's hit comedy Bad Jews, for which performance she won The UK Theatre Award.   She and the production received rave reviews, including one from The New York Times, which said of her:

“To watch the superb Miss Augen in full take-no-prisoners flow is to be sucked into the vortex of that rare stage creature who compels and repels in equal measure. Look away, and you find you cannot.” - Matt Wolf, The New York Times  (See reviews section)

Jenna graduated from The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in 2010.  She made her UK stage debut as Ada Kahn in Arnold Wesker's Chicken Soup With Barley at The Royal Court, directed by Olivier-winner Dominic Cooke and opposite two-time Olivier winner, Samantha Spiro. The Times of London said of Jenna's  performance,

"…a notable debut from young Jenna Augen as the daughter Ada. Her role is a hinge of the play: weary,  horrified by industrialism and brutalities, she has waited for her man through two wars.  She explodes at the table in a terrific credo, sharply delivered.  It is one of many very fine moments."  -Libby Purves, The Times of London (See reviews section

Jenna followed Ada with Goody in Rufus Norris'  Sleeping Beauty at The Birmingham Rep, and Foible, in Congreve's The Way of the World at The Chichester Festival Theatre, opposite Dame Penelope Keith as Lady Wishfort.

In the U.S., Jenna has played Julia in The Two Gentlemen of Verona  (The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company), Mitzi in A Murder Is Announced  (Lyceum, Arrow Rock), All the Women/Narrator in A Christmas Carol (Grove Theatre Center), and Tessa in The Gondoliers (The Sierra Madre Playhouse).

Film and Television include: ’The Night Watch’ (BBC) and the lead role of 'Josephine’ in the film ‘Josephine and the Roach’ which won two student Emmys and a Student Academy Award. 

Jenna is a proud member of BAE, AEA, and SAG-AFTRA.
