KITTY FELDE won the 2009 LA Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Adaptation of a trio of Nikolai Gogol short stories called GOGOL PROJECT, a commission from the Rogue Artists Ensemble. The LA Times said Felde "deftly balances flights of whimsy and depths of darkness."
She also won the Open Book/Fireside Theatre Playwriting Competition for her one-woman show ALICE: an evening with the tart-tongued daughter of Theodore Roosevelt, which sold out performances at the 2011 Capitol Fringe Festival – “critic’s pick” by The Washington Post.
Felde has written a melodrama set in San Francisco’s Barbary Coast (SHANGHAI HEART), a musical comedy about the Dodgers’ move from Brooklyn to Los Angeles (BUM’S RUSH), and a one-act about a radio cowboy whose show is moving to television, but without him: he doesn’t look like his voice (MAN WITH NO SHADOW.) Her courtroom drama A PATCH OF EARTH, winner of the Maxim Mazumdar New Play Competition, was inspired by her work covering the war crimes tribunals. It’s published by the University of Wisconsin Press in The Theatre of Genocide: Four Plays about Mass Murder in Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, and Armenia.
Her newest play THE LUCKIEST GIRL is the story of a young African-American girl’s obsession with the politically incorrect holiday figure Zwarte Piet.
Her day job is covering the shenanigans of politicos on Capitol Hill for Southern California Public Radio.
