Writers on Writers Festival 2016
Macha took part in the Linenhall Library’s Writers on Writers Festival 2016.
On Tuesday 10th May, Macha Artistic Director Jo Egan facilitated a discussion focusing on four plays from women playwrights from Northern Ireland, giving an overview of their life, their work, and the social and historical context it was created in. Playwrights discussed were Helen Waddell, Patricia O'Connor, Marie Jones & Fionnuala Kennedy.
On Friday 13th May – the library’s 228th birthday, we hosted an evening looking at three new plays in development by three women writers – Fionnuala Kennedy, Julie Maxwell and Tara Lynne O’Neill.
