Eva O’Connor will produce the inaugural Future Limerick: Climate Arts Festival with Hildegarde Ryan and their company Sunday’s Child Theatre from 16-21 May 2022. This month, she joins Ann Blake on the Limerick Lady podcast to talk about shifting the conversation on climate away from fear and guilt, towards a way to allow people to engage more fully through the arts.
Eva is a prolific playwright and performer who has enjoyed success with shows such as My Name Is Saoirse and Overshadowed, which was turned into a series for BBC in 2017. Her play Mustard premiered in 2020, and will tour to Edinburgh Fringe in 2022. You can listen to Eva O’Connor on Future Limerick: Climate Arts Festival here.
The Limerick Lady is a grassroots movement shining a spotlight on female performing artists. The aim is to boost female visibility, encourage gender parity across the board, and encourage young women to embark on careers in typically male-dominated industries. The podcast is co-hosted by Emma Langford and Ann Blake, and recorded with support from The Limerick Post newspaper and sponsored by Ormston House.
