Maisie Lee

Theatre Director and Radio Documentary Maker


A busy few months!

I was thrilled to get to come back to 'Normal', a show I so enjoyed working on last year. We were lucky enough to reopen the newly renovated Bewley's Cafe Theatre and had a lovely three week run in April, with really lovely responses from our fantastic audiences. 

Then it was on to the brilliant Lir Academy to direct a production of Gavin Kostick's first play, The Ash Fire, first produced in 1992. A really rich and complex text, it was an absolute pleasure to work on this with the highly talented graduating students from the Lir, who found so much in the characters and the story. 

Next up I'll be focusing on theatre for young audiences.  June will bring some further development work with Fionnuala Gygax on her piece 'The Boy in the Boat', with a work in progress showing at Cruinniú na nÓg in The Ark, curated by The Ark's Children's Council. Then I'll be working with Marie Ruane to facilitate 'Make A Play in a Week' Summer Camps at the Ark which should be great fun!
