Kate Glover studied History at Oxford University. After 3 years as a History teacher in secondary schools, she taught English to International business people in Paris, Trieste, Rome and even far-flung Tbilisi in Georgia before deciding to train as an actress at the age of 36.

Her need for Equity membership prompted her to write a play Dear Chocolate Soldier. She toured this with another actress and they both got the coveted Equity card.

Since then, she has successfully mixed and matched her acting career with writing, corporate role-play work and teaching. She speaks fluent French and passable Italian.

In 1997, she founded Historia Theatre Company, the purpose of which is to put on plays that have their source in or inspiration from History. Historia Theatre Company performed Kate Glover's adaptation of Fanny Burney's Evelina at Pentameters Theatre in 2004.

Playing age: 45-55
