SNUG has just wrapped up its 2023 run, packing out two of Cork's most characterful venues. HUMANS: a robot musical enjoyed a sold-out run in 2022 and national tour earlier is this year. I'm writing two new works for development in 2024 - more on this soon.


WHALE happened at Cork Opera House in Cork Midsummer Festival. The BelleVue was selected for the Pavilion Play Platform in Spring 2021 and won a Project Creation award 2022 from the Arts Council to develop the play towards production.  I wrote and performed in CITY (Everyman 2021), as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, supported by Culture Ireland and selected for the Origin NYC Festival.​
