I am a writer, performer and playwright based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I have a background in journalism and I’m often drawn to projects that require a lot of research — I wrote one show about the legal history of prostitution and another about flaws in our criminal justice system. Then again, sometimes I decide to write comedies about aliens, so you just never know.

Katherine Glover is a Minneapolis-based playwright and performer. She’s been touring solo shows across the U.S. and Canada since 2008, and her first full-length play, The Man in Her Dreams, premiered in October 2014, produced by Freshwater Theatre Company in Minneapolis.
Katherine won a 2013 Ivey Award for her one-act, Alien Love Triangle, also produced by Freshwater Theatre Company, and was nominated for a 2012 Capital Critics Circle Award in Ottawa, Ontario, for her solo show Dead Wrong. Renaissance Theaterworks in Milwaukee recently selected her as one of the two Br!nk 2015 playwrights, and her latest one-act, Celebrity Exception, premiered in June 2015 at the Ottawa Fringe Festival, produced by Black Sheep Theatre.
As a storyteller, Katherine has appeared at numerous Minneapolis comedy shows and spoken word events, including Two Chairs Telling, The Encyclopedia Show, Pillsbury Theatre’s Late Nite Series, The Moth, Speak Easy Twin Cities, StorySlamMN!, Hot Dish, Women Stand Up!, Cheap Theatre, and the Monday Night Comedy Show, as well as on Minnesota Public Radio’s now defunct show “In The Loop.” She’s a former board president and current board member of Story Arts of Minnesota and has co-produced several SAM events, including the first annual StoryFest in April 2013.
Katherine was a freelance journalist from 2001 to 2010, when she covered immigration, food and agriculture, and the GLBT community, with an emphasis on bisexual and transgender topics. She’s written for the Associated Press, Salon.com and Sierra Magazine, and she received her master’s from the Medill School of Journalism with a focus on business and economics reporting. While she is currently focused on theater, she may have a book proposal or two sitting on a back shelf, so stay tuned.
Though she spends ridiculous amounts of time in other places all over the world, she considers Minnesota’s Twin Cities home.
