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). 

As an actor, Kea’s stage credits include Roundabout, Classic Stage Company, The Sheen Center, The Barrow Group, Lincoln Center, Ensemble Studio Theater, and The Shakespeare Festival of St Louis. She has developed new work with The Lark, New Georges, Ars Nova, 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.

As a writer, Kea works across disciplines. Her short film about climate change, “All Is Well,” co-written by Taylor Steele and directed by Elaine Del Valle, premiered at New Filmmakers LA in March 2023, and screens at Nevada Women’s Film Festival in Las Vegas and the  Big Apple Film Festival this summer. Kea is a 2020 Outfest Screenwriting Lab Fellow, and her feature script “The Wedding Date,” co-written by Cody Stickels, is currently being developed by Big Swing Productions.

Kea is a founding member and co-artistic director of Apocalyptic Artists Ensemble. Their past multimedia productions include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Julius Caesar. Kea is slated to direct their 2022-23 flagship production, As You Like It, this summer.

Kea is represented by Brantley Brown of Authentic Talent, and commercially by Michael Raymen of Buchwald.
