In the last few months HUMANS: a robot musical (Graffiti, Everyman) went on a national tour, beautifully captured in this video.  I was also part of  the  inaugural Raising our Voices project with Graffiti. SNUG returned to two of Cork's most characterful venues, and we're currently planning a national tour in 2025.

This year the Arts Council awarded me Project funding to write a new play, with dramaturgical support from the Abbey Theatre.
