"Hot for Feminist Theory Professor" is coming!

ALERT! "Hot for Feminist Theory Professor," my first full-length comedic play in 6 years, is coming! 

Written and performed by Kim Katzberg and Tom X. Chao – a true collaboration!
Directed by Christian Amato.

At the College of Low Hills, one-of-a-kind Women’s Studies instructor Professor Losstt-Keyes yearns for a partnership, but also struggles to keep her independence in a world where women feel more threatened than ever by unenlightened men.

Award-winning writer-performer Kim Katzberg (STRAYS, TERRY: RECOVERING PET DETECTIVE) reunites with theater veteran Tom X. Chao (CALLOUS CAD, CATS CAN SEE THE DEVIL) for his first new piece in 5 years.
