A recent transplant from the East Coast, Catherine Rush is a theater-hyphenate. She has produced, costume designed, sound designed, written, and acted in plays across America. Most noted as a playwright, Catherine is also a trained and craft-driven actor. Her early studies were with teachers from the Julliard School: John Stix (acting, Strasburg), Tim Monich (speech Edith Skinner), Cyndia Huppler (movement), Amy Pell (Alexander Technique) and Liz Smith (voice). She received Shakespeare training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. A few of her credits include: the role of Hannah/Ethel Rosenberg and four other character s(2 of them male )  in Angels in America Parts 1 and 2; the role of the mother, Flo Owens in Picnic; Viola in Twelfth Night,  (A role she performed solely in American Sign Language. ); Aunt Dosie in A Child’s Christmas in Wales for the National Theater of the Deaf; and in New York City as Lakme in And Things that Go Bump in the Night. Catherine has also worked in numerous small independent films and participated as an actor in more staged readings than she cares to count. As a costume designer, Catherine trained at the Parsons School of Design in their New School program. She started her own company, Road Widow, which designed clothing for Rock and Roll and Jazz musicians. As a producer, Catherine proudly executive produced, Have Faith, the duo album of Broadway greats Mary Testa and Michael Starobin distributed on Ghostlight Records. As a playwright, Catherine’s play, The Loudest Man on Earth, produced by TheatreWorks of Silicon Valley was named one of the top ten plays of 2013 by the SF Chronicle and received the coveted “clapping man falling out of his seat” as its review. Other full-length productions include This Island Alone at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse, Losing the Shore for BCKSEET Productions in Philadelphia, and A Nice Place to Live at Wheelock Family Theatre. A full list of productions, awards, workshops and readings can be found on her website.

Catherine has her undergraduate degree from Yale University, in New Haven CT and her MFA from the Spalding School in Louisville, KY. She is a member of AEA, SAG/AFTRA, and a voting member of the Dramatist’s Guild. She is fluent in American Sign Language.
