Molly Olis Krost is a Filipina Jewish playwright based in the Bay Area. Her plays explore the constant collisions of the human experience: collisions with others, with our society, and within ourselves. Her play NANAY was a semi-finalist for the National Playwrights Conference and the Bay Area Playwrights Festival. 

Her plays have been performed or are forthcoming at Z Space, San Francisco Playhouse, PlayGround, The Parsnip Ship, Clutch Productions, MaArte Theatre Collective, Ain’t I A Woman Playfest, SOMArts Cultural Center, and SFSU Fringe. She was awarded the Gita Specker First Place Award for Best Dramatic Monologue by the San Francisco Browning Society. Her writing has been published in {m}aganda magazine and she is the co-creator and editor of the zine Bowlcuts and Boba. She holds an MFA in Playwriting from San Francisco State University. When not writing, Molly enjoys painting, baking, crafting, and misquoting song lyrics.
