I was so excited to be part of this festival after the fabulous time I had acting in last years Shakespeare Festival.
Originally, I wanted to direct a completely movement-based/art piece using the theme of fariries and the tale of 'Children of Lir' combined.
However, I had the brilliant assistance of Alex Christle and stage management skills of Jack O'Donoghue to help me make 'Children of Lir' into our own little piece of outdoor drama and movement.
As with the majority of student theatre productions, the budget is usually low or non-existent. Although this can obviously limit our ability to make our production how we want it to be, it also forced me and the others to think more creatively about sourcing costume or prop pieces.

|Beautiful Cast - Grainne, Ellie, Alice, Sean, Emily, Hazel, Grace, Matti, and Kat|
Lir's jacket was painted by myself with celtic designs and he wore some fantastic velvet trousers provided by Players. Aoifa's dress was provided by the wonderful Emily herself.
|All in all I had a fantastic time creating this piece of theatre and loved working with all these amazing people.|
