Maeve is a freelance theatre director whose work emphasises musical innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration. She conceives and directs plays adapted from literary texts or concepts and revisits the canon with a feminist lens. Originally from Limerick Maeve moved to Dublin in 2005 to study Theatre and English at Trinity where she graduated with honours in 2009. She became resident Assistant Director at The Abbey Theatre in 2012 and following this became the first Associate Director with Pan Pan Theatre Company. Maeve is currently in pre-production for UNWOMAN Part III , a collaboration with avant-garde theatre company THE RABBLE (Australia) which will premiere in a festival this September. Recent productions include The Mouth of a Shark with Change of Address and THE SHITSTORM, an Abbey-Fringe Co-Production which debuted as part of Dublin Fringe at The Peacock September 2017. She is also in development for a new project called Echo; an interdisciplinary collaboration with composer Simon O’Connor and Soprano Michelle O’Rourke which was presented as work in progress at Project Arts Centre, January 2018 . Recent directing credits include Left Behind: Songs of the 1916 Rising, The Meeting House, Wake, The Red Room and Underground Gothic. She unwittingly named the #WakingTheFeminists movement in 2015 and was a speaker at the Public Meeting at the Abbey. In 2015 she co-founded Change of Address Collective with Moira Brady-Averill and Oonagh Murphy working to connect artists and refugees.
