Theatre director, and designer


Kate trained at the Central School of Art and Design with Ralph Koltai. She began her career at the Citizen's Theatre, Glasgow. In the 1970s and 1980s she designed for many new productions for alternative and experimental theatre. She has designed over 150 first productions of new plays, new dance and circus.

In 1979 she began working for Gay Sweatshop, mainly as theatre designer, but occasionally as director. In February 1984 she became a member of a re-constituted management committee for Gay Sweatshop. She teaches theatre design at King Alfred's University College, and other design schools.
