Kathryn de la Rosa is a writer & dramaturg.

Born at sunrise in Kentucky during a full moon 🌝, they aspire to theater that is buoyantly radical, with love for people, their gods and their communities in the middle of America and the edges of its empire.

Plays include Holy Virgins, about future communist queer Catholic school girls in Kentucky (Northwestern University, developed with 2019–20 Actors Theatre PTC); pasyon play, an epic Filipino answer to Sarah Ruhl, 1637 to 1970; Ribs, a graduation love letter (Indiana University); and The Best Day, for Taylor Swift on her 31st birthday. They have worked as a dramaturg at Actors Theatre of Louisville, The New Harmony Project, Working Title Playwrights, Indiana University, College of the Holy Cross, and directly with writers on stage and audio plays and libretti.

Niches Kathryn has brought to collaborations range from Vatican II to journalism ethics to creating in-play tarot spreads. With their educational background in radio, they've edited and produced podcasts for clients like Actors Theatre of Louisville, Playing On Air, and Lantigua Williams & Co. They also knit and code websites.

In fall 2021, Kathryn hopes to pursue an MA in theology, with interest in Filipino liberation theology, postcolonial religious syncreticism, and theater about both. They majored in theatre & drama and journalism at Indiana University, where they wrote the inaugural Indiana Daily Student astrology column.
