Tahirih Moeller enjoys theater that represents the working class community, one that shines a spotlight on the everyday person to speak up and tell their stories that are as poetic as Greek mythology and unfortunately at times just as tragic. The stories that dance betweens triumph and tragedy, they are raunchy, comedic, and magical. In 2016 she received 2nd place from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival’s Hip Hop Theater Creator Award for "A Live Mixtape". In 2018, she was Playwright in Residence at the California Repertory Theater, Cal State Long Beach, to develop "A Live Mixtape".
