Kate West

Kate West (she/her) is an actor originally from Connecticut and raised in southern California.

She believes some of the most compelling work starts with observation, and often draws inspiration from real people with various backgrounds and dialects.

West has been a lover of Shakespeare for as long as she can remember, and in the last four years has indulged in her passion for contemporary theatre (some of her favorites being from Paula Vogel, Steve Yockey, & Branden Jacobs-Jenkins).

When not acting, Kate enjoys playing guitar, singing, crocheting, and watching Drag Race whilst cuddling her cats Sufjan, Bijou, & Gemma.
