Rachel Kauder Nalebuff makes theatre that is built around people. Her play The Bumps (Skirball Cultural Center, 2017) is a play about waiting for the unknown, written for a cast of pregnant actors who rotate through the production. Her play A Quarter Century (59E59 St. Theaters, Workshop performance, 2017) features people over the age of 65 performing the language of 25-year-olds. The Seed Eaters (Grazer Kunstverein/Steirischer Herbst Festival 2017) made in collaboration with Emily Mast, can be performed by any three people who are different from one another. Her work has been supported and presented by REDCAT, the Hammer Museum and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.  

Apart from her work as a playwright, Rachel directs 3 Hole Press, a small press bringing new audiences to new plays in printed formats. She is also the editor of My Little Red Book (Twelve Books, 2009) and co-editor of The Feminist Utopia Project (Feminist Press, 2015) with Alexandra Brodsky.

She is currently working on her MFA in Erin Courtney and Mac Wellman's playwriting program at Brooklyn College.
