Kevin Delin has blended science and writing since the earliest stages of his career. He has four degrees from MIT, including a PhD in physics. While at MIT he studied writing under author Frank Conroy and playwright A.R. Gurney, the latter becoming a life-long mentor. After a post-graduate stretch in Silicon Valley, Kevin worked at NASA where he invented and patented a wireless sensing technology that aids in the search for extraterrestrial life. He received the prestigious NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal for the pioneering nature of this work.

As an essayist on science, art, and society, his bylines have appeared in the national publications American Theatre and Script, as well as the Los Angeles publications LA Weekly, Stage Raw, and Footlights. Kevin’s artistic insights spring from a unique life-experience which includes cutting-edge international science and government policy-making at the highest levels. He is a member of the Antaeus Theatre Playwrights Lab and served as dramaturg on the world premiere of FOREVER BOUND (2018).

Plays

  • Invisible
    It's going to be a long August night at Abigail's, the New England bed and breakfast named after the ghost thought to haunt the place. All hell breaks loose when an unlikely trio of women unlock data on a secret government agency’s memory card. INVISIBLE is a play about apparitions, the media... and, oh yeah, climate change.
  • That Scottish Cat (10 minute play)
    Four jazz musicians struggle to present the Scottish Play in Seussical-style.
