At 45 years old, Kate Mulvany has this physical status:
Mulvany has played Cassius, Lady Macbeth, and was lauded for her performance as Richard III in which she revealed her real-life spinal disability. Her adaptation of Craig Silvey’s novel Jasper Jones has been performed in Perth by Barking Gecko Theatre Company, in Sydney by Belvoir St Theatre, and in Melbourne by the Melbourne Theatre Company. In 2015 it was shortlisted for the Nick Enright Prize for Playwriting, New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards.
In 2018, Mulvany adapted Ruth Park's The Harp in the South trilogy as a two-part play for Sydney Theatre Company. In 2019, she followed this with an adaptation of the Schiller play Mary Stuart - the first to be undertaken by a woman - again for Sydney Theatre Company.

In April 2019, Deadline announced that Mulvany had been cast as a series regular in Amazon Prime Video's new 10-episode Nazi-hunting series Hunters, created by David Weil and produced by Jordan Peele. She will play one of the Hunters, Sister Harriet,
