OSIRIS KHEPERA is a well-traveled, Chicago-bred, Black, Queer playwright, poet, actor, & activist. He is a member of the Playwright's Collective at Timeline Theatre Company (2020-2022), and a Russ Tutterow Playwrighting Fellow at Chicago Dramatists Theatre (2019). Alisha Wormsley’s artistic truism: There Are Black People In The Future, is a foundational theme to much of his work, as he creates Afrofuturistic and speculative fiction pieces that celebrate the culture and kaleidoscopic variance of the African Diaspora.
