Katrina D. RiChard

Katrina D. RiChard is so honored to have been chosen to be apart of TNC’s Writers’ Room.  Katrina is an up and coming playwright in Chicago, where she was born and raised.  She fell in love with theater on the stage.  As an actress, she has worked with several companies including: Raven Theatre, Black Ensemble Theater,  IMPAACT, and ETA Creative Arts Foundation.  In 2015 she wrote, produced, and starred in a one-woman show entitled, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough:  A Tribute to Diana Ross” which opened to a sold out house and was remounted later that year due to popular demand.  Katrina is very clear about her purpose as a playwright, to write stories where women of color are the protagonists and the focal point.  My mission is to create space for women of color to tell their own stories, explore their complexities, and help to showcase the incredible gifts and talents they bring to the theater industry.
