It has been a joy to be on the panel for this year’s super strong ETPEP Award. National playwriting competitions such as these provide insight into what’s eating us, even a sense of what is to come. Congrats to significant emerging talent Saana Sze, a name I’m sure you’ll hear frequently from now on.

Mayo magic: The Dog in the Treehouse wins the 2017 Claremorris Fringe Award
What could top two weeks at the Heinrich Boll cottage on Achill Island? Very little, but picking up the 2017 Claremorris Fringe Award for my short play “The Dog in the Treehouse” on the day of my departure comes close.
Not only does this win supply prestige and very welcome prize money, but I also was presented with an excellent staged version of my play, and treated with royal hospitality by the event organisers and theatre lovers from every corner of Ireland. What a March you’ve provided Mayo!
