Sineads guest today is Margaret/Maggie Hannon – an actor and theatre maker originally from Cork and now living and working in Donegal. Maggie resigned in 2015 as a medical doctor to take a Masters in Authorial acting in the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague where she graduated with honours in 2018. Since then, she is working as a professional actor, coach, theatre maker and writer.
In this conversation Maggie tells us about her journey towards leaving the medical profession and becoming a professional actor, her time in Prague – the fellow artists and teachers she me there, the gorgeous and thought-provoking story of Sister Black – one of her own devised works, the importance and potency of the Irish language, her work on Ros Na Run and so so much more!
