The latest fim I did was called 'Paper Island' and I played the character of Lois. It was a Dutch short film and I spent two weeks in Amsterdam shooting it.
It is about two women, Vera, who is Dutch and Lois who is Irish who fall in love. They meet in Amsterdam but their relationship grows through their unique long distance communication. Lois moves to Amsterdam to be with Vera, the film examines the challenge that comes with commitment as the two get used to one another and particular issues emerge to the surface.
The film is being edited at the moment and should be completed in August.
The website for the film is as follows: www.paperisland.nl
I have also done two short films for Dublin Business School. One of them was a film Noir piece where I played the Femme fatale and the other was a screenplay about the MagdeIene laundries. I also filmed another student film for Ballyfermot college, it was a period piece set in a dog kennels in Navan where an unexpected love affair springs up between two women working there.
My latest Theatre production was in the Mill Theatre. It was a play called 'Ginny Joes' written by Elizibeth Martha Tutty and directed by Vincent Smith. The play was composed of six 15 minute monologes and it dealt with the disappearance of three women. I played a young woman from the Liberties called Angie who opens the play with her monlogue. She is a joyful character reminiscing about her childhood. Here is a link of the details.
I also performed in the Viking Theatre. The play was called 'My Mother Said I Never Should' by Charlotte Keatley and directed by Laura Dowdall. The dates were September 3-15 2012. The play was a 4 part female ensemble cast set in Manchester. The play explores family life through four generations and deals with the expectation of the women and the choices available to them. Each character plays themselves as a child and an adult, however the scenes are not arranged in chronological order. I played the character Jackie.
