I am the director of Calamity Theatre, a Galway-based theatre company.
Below is a list of the various theatre projects I’ve worked on over the years:
Apoptosis is my first full-length original play, debuting in July 2018 at the Galway Fringe Festival. We received a great mention from Lorna Siggins in The Irish Times which you can read here. Calamity Theatre intends to show Apoptosis again in the future, so like us on Facebook so you don’t miss our next show!
At present, I have written two plays for the Theatre Room in 2018. Great Exposure was performed in February and How To Train Your Werewolf (which you can read here) was performed in March.
At present, I have performed in two Theatre Room plays in 2018, and presented the March show. In January, I performed in A Letter to You by Stephen Cadwell. In February, I performed in The Galway Sage by Ita Reddington.
I will be directing my original play, Apoptosis, in the Galway Fringe Festival in July.
I wrote two plays that were performed as part of Theatre Room Shows. In January, I wrote New Year’s Resolution and in June, I wrote Two’s a Crowd (which you can read here).

Revelations was featured in the Galway Theatre Festival as part of The Theatre Room Trail.

100 Shades of Grey
I played a variety of roles in ensemble pieces and monologues as part of 100 Shades of Grey, a devised play directed by Charlotte McIvor that examined sexual conduct in conjunction with the NUI Galway Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance and the NUI Galway Department of Psychology.
I directed four plays through the Theatre Room; We Need to Talk by John Valter Paintner, The Revenge of Luisa Ricci by Ronan Cassidy, The Rebellion Offstage by Tim Meaney, and Meteor? I Barely Even Know Her! by Paul O’ Mahony.
