Katharine Clark Gray, 2008 Pew Fellow. Directed by Glenn Holsten.

"That's the thing that I find important about theater: describing moments that you've had in your life, that you've never been able to put words to."

Katharine Clark Gray (b. 1977) is a writer, producer, actor, and artist. In 2001 she created Governor's Laundress Productions to produce challenging work for stage, including her own The B Side and You See Me Comin' You Better Run. Gray also co-founded A Chip & A Chair Films, acting as the director of design. Gray states that what she loves to do is create works that explore the archetypes of sex, politics, or religion through the prism of "making a living."

These works have been produced at various theaters, including the Drilling Company, New York, NY; 3 Graces Theatre Company, New York, NY; and the Manhattan Theatre Source Estrogenius Festival.
