LISP theatre festival

You may remember our interview with Sharon Sexton in the summer when she told us about plans to stage the first London Irish Short Play Festival. Well, her call for submissions had a great response. Now she and her husband Cillian Donnachadha, who together head the Biscuits for Breakfast Theatre Company, have made their selection. Six plays will be performed at the London Irish Centre in Camden from October 20th for four nights. Two of the successful playwrights – Siubhan McNally and Brendan Kenny came into our studios to talk about the festival. They told Catherine Carroll to expect an entertaining evening with something for everyone – even if you don’t have a drop of Irish blood.
