The central ambition and focus of my work as a writer and director is to derive an original dramatic text from a documentary practice abstracting personal histories and social realities through performance and design. My most recent play Alien Documentary premiered at Dublin Theatre Festival 2016 and won The Stewart Parker Award for New Writing 2017.

Since 2012 I’ve worked with producer Rachel Murray on Alien Documentary, Bite Me and Singlehood. We are currently in development with a new show, Madhouse for production in 2018.

As well as directing original work for theatre I’ve directed Moving City by Maeve Higgins (2013 DFF), Bite Me by Joanne McNally (2016 DFF) and 100% Salford by Rimini Protokoll at The Lowry Theatre Manchester (2016). In 2013 I cast and co-directed 100% Cork with Rimini Protokoll at Cork Midsummer Festival.

In 2015 I co-wrote Separated at Birth with comedians PJ Gallagher and Joanne McNally.

I’m an Associate of Project Arts Centre, Dublin since 2009.
