Playwright: Katherine Hinkel
As a Philadelphia-based playwright, Kat is thrilled to debut with SPIES! as part of the 2018 Fringe Festival. Rooted in her love of immersive theater, IoT (Internet of Things) and tech, and cringeworthy dad jokes, SPIES! has been an adventure to write. SPIES! was developed as part of the PlayPenn workshop series and with feedback from her playwriting group, the Bourbon Bowls.
