Having participated in theatre most of my life, it was only natural I move from novels to plays. I started with short plays via Crash Test Drama and eventually wrote and then directed and produced my first full length play - Black Rainbow. I'm also hoping to produce another two full length works currently in development.

Black Rainbow – full length work by Kathy Petrakis  – Performed  at Tap Gallery Aug 13-24 2014

Can hope survive anything? Can love really conquer all? Are you really master of your fate?

Black Rainbow is a story about a teenage boy living a double life. He uses street crime to survive unbeknownst to his private school peers or his devoted girlfriend. when tragic events force his lives to collide, he must choose between those who saved him from destitution and the desire to finally live and love freely.

An emotionally charged play that deals with difficult choices, the power of fate , the meaning of family and the sacrifices of love.Note: Contains frequent coarse language.
