Kate Scarlett Duffy

Kate trained at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in Drama, Applied Theatre and Education and subsequently gained experience working with marginalised youth and young adults in arts, criminal justice, housing and education settings.

She has an MA in Migration and Diaspora Studies from SOAS and is currently a practice research PhD candidate at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, exploring self-authored performance of unaccompanied minor identity and masculinity.
