Kathryn de la Rosa is a writer & new play 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); Ribs, a graduation love letter (Indiana University); pasyon play, an epic Filipino answer to Sarah Ruhl, 1637 to 1970; 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, the National Arts Diversity Integration Association, and directly with writers on stage and audio plays and libretti on a consulting basis.

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 Actors Theatre of Louisville, Playing On Air, and Lantigua Williams & Co.

They are knitter, ex-college newspaper astrologer, and an incoming MA Theology and the Arts candidate at United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities, with interest in Filipino and Latin American liberation theologies, postcolonial religious syncreticism, and theater about both.
