New Play Reading part of Galway Theatre Festival

I mentioned recently that my short play The Love of Small Appliances had been selected to be part of the Waking the Feminists West New Play Reading.

Last night the programme for this year’s Galway Theatre Festival was unveiled, and our event is going to be part of the schedule – hurray!

It’s happening in the Town Hall Theatre Studio, Galway from 6pm on 6 May.

You can book tickets now for this staged reading of six writers’ work via the web site.

Last week I had a feedback session with several dramatruges associated with WTFW, including Justine Nakase, the director of my excerpt. It was a helpful, and inspiring, couple of hours, and reminds me that working as a playwright in a supportive environment can be quite uplifting.

All going well I’ll also get to sit in on an advance reading with the actors – which is where the magic truly happens. There are a lot of steps, even for a staged reading, so I’m looking forward to being part of this alchemical process.

And, the Galway Theatre Festival is taking place from 29 April – 7 May. There is a lot of terrific work being showcased, so there will be plenty to see that week in the City of the Tribes.
