Katy Burke is a Richmond VA local who was last seen on stage in Firehouse Theatre’s “American Idiot” in 2016. Since then, her primary focus has been writing and manifesting script-based experiences throughout RVA. The more off beat, the better. From the largest interactive escape room on the east coast to the simple scavenger hunts, she has strived to create content worth performing and experiencing. Katy’s day job as a Standardized Patient at MCV introduced her to half of the talent in Kismett Roulette….the other half is related to her. Which, she is delighted to say, has only strengthened familial ties.
Katy began developing Kismett Roulette as a guest in her parent’s house during the 2020 lockdown. In its early stages, The Forgotten Isles and the future were such lonely places; with quarantine keeping people apart, character development was the biggest challenge. The story only came to life once she involved friends and family in October of 2020. Recording via zoom and/or in the Burke family attic, the team worked through sickness, horrid weather, and all the emotions that came with the Covid pandemic.
Katy is eternally grateful to those voices and minds that filled The Forgotten Isles with hilarity, perspective, and love. Thanks to her cast, the future is no longer lonely. Thanks to her parents, the show is no longer confined to the attic. Thanks to you, the show goes on.
