My Story

Rebs is a playwright, dramaturg, actor, and sound designer based in the Bay Area and metro Detroit. Originally from Howell, MI, they recently graduated from Kalamazoo College with honors in Theatre Arts and completed a year teaching abroad in Taiwan. Across their artistic work, their prime objective is intersectionality, creating and supporting theatre that is intersectional in both representation and artistic form. They are currently Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s Peter F. Sloss Artistic Fellow. They also serve as an outside reader for Playwrights Horizons in New York.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.


Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.


iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
