I'm currently developing full length musical In the Unlikely Event, supported by an Arts Council project award, and Missing Earth, a musical for young audiences funded for Graffiti by the RTÉ Toy Show fund.

Recent produced works are HUMANS: A Robot Musical (Graffiti, Everyman for Cork Midsummer Festival 2022 & national tour 2023), SNUG (Cork City Council 2022 & 2023), an entirely sung story set in a pub, and WHALE (Cork Opera House, Cork Midsummer Festival 2022).

My play The BelleVue co-won the Pavilion Play Platform in 2021 and CITY (Everyman 2021) was part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Ireland showcase, supported by Culture Ireland, selected for Origin NYC Festival. I was the inaugural Theatre Artist in Residence at Cork Opera House-UCC 2018 - 2020 and I'm a long-term mentor on the Young Playwrights Programme in Cork.
