Paddy C Courtney believes in giving the voiceless a voice. He may say that now but we are wise to the “Actor mimes [entire play]” trick here at #24HrDub HQ.
Ali Hardiman joins the Creative Team of The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre as a writer. After a rip roaring 2019, she is kicking off 2020 with a bang. And a truck load of cookies.
Órla Mc Govern is a proud ex-DYT-er and one of the #24HrDub 2018 writers. Always great to welcome our alumni back for this crazy show! Now based in the Wild West, she is a performer and writer. Her plays have been performed on a moving barge, in a forest, and in a brewery (as well […]
Our first writer profile this year and we discover that we are being used in a weird New-Year’s-Resolution-in-December-Experiment. Sinead Moriarty is the author of 12 books published by Penguin. To date, her books have been translated into 25 languages. She has just finished her 13th novel and is delighted to be taking a break from […]
Fiona Looney who describes herself “Writer, dreamer, big goose. Patron saint of aul’ wans.” has been here before. She wrote It’s the end of the world and I feel hungry in 2013 which was directed by Alan King and included Stefanie Preissner in the cast. They are also both returning this year as an actor […]
Caitríóna Daly is one of our team of seven writers this year. You can find her on Twitter @caitrionadaly and on Medium where she is “typing and shouting.” A multitasker so. Last November Caitríona wrote “Test Dummy” which premiered in Theatre Upstairs last November and included Caitríona Ennis in the cast who is one of our valiant […]

Tara Flynn fell into comedy

I’m having great fun rustling up the Q&As of the 2016 Creative Team for The 24 Hour Plays in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre supported by BNP Paribas Real Estate. I am realising, however, I will never be one of the writers. I couldn’t bear the pressure unlike today’s subject, Lee Coffey, who reckons it […]
To be fair it was past time for elevensies when we interviewed John Butler for this series so coffee features A LOT in this Q&A. Have you taken part in THE 24 HOUR PLAYS before? Never. What is the most memorable dramatic experience you have had, and why? Making The Stag. Inspirational company. When did […]
