Our August Play Clinics went really well. It was a pleasure to interrogate such quality work with makers who were so open to a challenging process. Thanks to Garter Lane, Waterford Arts Office and the Arts Council, we are delighted to announce the line-up of our October Play Clinics.
Dr Ger FitzGibbon is former Head of Theatre at UCC and is now a freelance writer and
director. Recent plays include The Bed; Tenebrae; Johnno’s Wars; The Hairdresser’s
Calendar; The Four-Faced Liar, Ghostlight. He has also completed several adaptations and versions of classic texts and collaborated with other playwrights on a number of projects. He will be bringing in a new piece in early development called Bennadetta's Dream.
Aoife FitzPatrick is an Actor, Writer and Music-maker from Dublin, Ireland, graduated from The Gaiety School of Acting & Bow Street Screen Academy.
She is currently working now to synthesize her artistic practices and is developing as an Interdisciplinary artist, ranging from acting, composing music, to writing. Her new work is called Lissagriffin.
Eve O Mahony is an actress and writer. Her two one woman shows- The Last Witch Bridget Cleary and The Deliciously Scandalous Life &Times of Miss Peg Plunkett are based on the life and times of two infamous Irish women. She has a keen interest in telling stories from the perspective of Irish Women from the perspective of myth, legend and a little bit of madness. She is working on The Doll's Hospital.
Mary Grehan has been living in Passage East, Co Waterford, since 2003. She divides her time between writing and curating for the new children’s hospital in Dublin and her debut novel Love is the Easy Bit, was published by Penguin in 2013.
Mary is developing Feral. The play mines the dynamics of village life, the alliances, rivalries and the double dealing which are fuelled by diverse feelings about the local feral goats. The story kicks off when Dubliner Izzy, on the run from a drug dealer in Dublin, arrives with her son Leon to Knocknagower where Leon’s grandmother lives. But their arrival recalls past events that some would rather forget.
It's another exciting line-up. The Crows can't wait to get stuck in!
