Hello, My Name is Kate Perry . . . and I’ve Been Drinking! – that was the first solo show I penned and performed. I am originally from Co. Tyrone, moved to Derry and currently live in London. Other work includes an adaptation of the novel No Mate for the Magpie and radio plays broadcast on BBC Radio 4, RTE Radio 1, BBC Northern Ireland and Woman’s Hour. You can have a listen to them on the site. Go on – you know you want to.
Besides writing and performing my own material I have appeared in numerous stage, film and television productions. I am also a voice over artist (yes you can listen to those too) and graduated with a distinction from Trinity College, Dublin with an MPhil in creative writing. I also hold a master’s degree in screenwriting from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dun Laoghaire. I have been the beneficiary of funding from the arts council Ireland, The Irish Film Board and have attended artist residency programmes in Ireland and the U.S.
The Very Perry Show was presented at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, transferred to The San Francisco International Arts Festival, opened The Big Tickle Comedy Festival in Derry at The Playhouse and is now whistling its way to The Hen & Chickens Theatre in Islington, London before heading to The United Theatre Solo Festival in NY on November 16th.
Stay tuned folks . . .
