Children needed for upcoming film

Motherhood is being directed by Maureen O Connell (director of award-winning short film Proclaim, Girls and Thespish) and written by Christiane O Mahony (Sisters of the Rising, Follow Me, Mario Rosenstock).

The film is a comedy about a woman who is uncertain about motherhood. She is celebrating her birthday in a hotel with friends and she seems to meet children in increasing numbers on the day that’s in it.

We are filming in the royal marine Hotel Dun Laoghaire and the shoot time for the children would be 12-2 pm on December 12th. We are seeking children aged up to 10 years.

While the film is low budget and therefore we cannot offer payment, everyone involved will be sent a final cut of the film when it is completed early in 2018.

If interested, contact Christiane at

Casting for Scene and Heard festival

Please see the casting notice from the director below:

I am casting for a play that I wrote and will direct; it will be staged next February in Scene and Heard in Smock Alley. The dates as yet are to be confirmed, but more than likely the piece will be performed over 1/2 nights between the 13th and 20th Feb. The play will take place after 6 p.m.. All these details will be confirmed in the coming weeks. This is a profit-share production, but I have to warn, as part of the festival, we will share a slot with 1/2 other pieces, and split profits with them, so we might make nothing/very little at all unfortunately!

My play is called ‘LOCKED(in)’. It will be produced by Emma Hanley, under Loft Productions.

Small blurb: Imagine losing control over everything. You can’t move on your own. You cannot scratch an itch. And worse still, you cannot tell anyone that you have an itch. People ask you to tell them…tell them anything and everything…but eventually they stop listening.

LOCKED(in) will tell the story of Emily: a normal girl who one day has a stroke, and her life changes forever. She wakes up in hospital, unable to do anything, a -’vegetable’,some might say. Eventually she begins to communicate through an alphabet board. But for her friends and family, knowing Emily could potentially never get better, becomes too much. Two years battling the cruel illness of Locked In Syndrome, Emily decides she cannot go on…will someone help her end her life? Or must she struggle on, in a silent helpless world, with only her memories and photographs for company.


What do I need?

I am looking for four/five actors, with two of those doubling up as other characters.

I am looking for:

EMILY: Between 18-30.

EVAN: Emily’s boyfriend 18-30

JEAN/NURSE: Emily’s Mother/ Nurse Kathleen in hospital. Between 30-60. Might cast two people for this.

DOCTOR/VOLUNTEER: Between 25-50.


The piece will last only 20/25 minutes.

I am holding auditions this coming weekend on Saturday the 9th, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. A venue will be confirmed once I email the successful applicants, but it is looking like somewhere in the city centre. I will need everyone auditioning to perform a 1-2 contemporary monologue of their choice.

To apply, email me on

I will get back to everyone who applies by Friday!
