Kea Trevett

Kea is an actor, writer, teacher, and theater maker based in her hometown {and first love}, New York City. A member of Actor’s Equity and SAG-AFTRA, Kea is your offbeat leading lady of {mis}adventures both tragic and comic. Imagine Kristin Wiig and Maggie Gyllenhaal had a baby, and the baby is really into re-storying classic texts, championing queer and female-driven narratives, and overnight hiking trips... which is to say, singing show tunes at dramatic vistas and making Banana Boats in the campfire (google it. you’re welcome). 

Kea’s stage credits include Roundabout, Classic Stage Company, The Sheen Center, The Barrow Group, Lincoln Center, and The Shakespeare Festival of St Louis. She has developed new work with The Lark, New Georges, Ars Nova, Ensemble Studio Theater, Cherry Lane, Page 73, Playhouse on Park, GoodCapp Arts, Playhouse Creatures, and HB Studios. Her work on camera has screened at Sundance, Atlanta Film Festival, Frameline, Chicago Reeling, Outfest and Newfest, and is currently streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Crypt TV, Omeleto, and the Short Film Collective.

Kea is a founding member and co-artistic director of Apocalyptic Artists Ensemble, an education-minded theater company. Their multimedia production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, co-produced by APAC, streamed to NYC public schools students in Spring of 2021, and premiered to the public last June. Their second film, a bilingual adaptation of Julius Caesar, premiered earlier this summer. Kea is slated to direct their 2022-23 flagship production.

Kea teaches Playwriting and Shakespeare at Theatre for a New Audience, and is Director of Programming at Creative Muse, a 2022 CRNY AEP Grant Recipient. She is a 2020 Outfest Screenwriting Lab Fellow, a Story Pirate, Brooklyn dweller, and proud plant mom. She is represented by Brantley Brown of Authentic Talent, and commercially by Michael Raymen of Buchwald.
