Cat is an award-winning performer and playwright based in Edmonton. Her work is intellectual and darkly comic, often with a strong visual component. Her plays integrate elements of science and philosophy in unexpected ways while exploring the darker side of human nature. Her work has recently been seen at This Is YEG: New Plays for a Changing City (Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre), and at the Skirts aFire Festival. Her other plays include the gas station gothic The Laws of Thermodynamics (Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Nomination- Outstanding New Play) the quantum-inspired Fetch, and the black comedy The Feast of All Saints. Her solo play eleven-oh-four received an Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Nomination for Outstanding New Play at the Fringe, and Cat was awarded the Sterling for Outstanding Performance by an Actress at the Fringe. Cat is currently working on a new solo piece, as well as her new play Do This In Memory of Me, which will be produced in Fall 2017. She is a graduate of the University of Ottawa.
