As her time as Writer-in-Residence draws to a close, join Rosemary Jenkinson in conversation with Literary Manager Rebecca Mairs to celebrate her year with the Lyric. Gain an insight into Rosemary's writing ethos, including how she writes, why she writes and for whom she writes.
Rosemary is from Belfast and is the current Writer-in-Residence at the Lyric. Her first play, 'The Bonefire', won the Stewart Parker BBC Radio Award and her latest, 'Lives in Translation', has recently been produced by Kabosh. Her plays have been performed in Belfast, Dublin, London, Edinburgh, New York and Washington DC. She has written 'White Star of the North' and 'Here Comes the Night' for the Lyric, the latter appearing on the main stage in 2016.
Her writing for radio includes 'Castlereagh to Kandahar' (BBC Radio 3) and 'The Blackthorn Tree' (BBC Radio 4). She was writer-on-attachment at the National Theatre Studio in London in 2010. She is also a short story writer: a first collection of short stories, 'Contemporary Problems Nos. 53 & 54', was published by Lagan Press and a second, 'Aphrodite's Kiss', by Whittrick Press. Her third collection will be published by Doire Press in 2018.
She is currently working on a number of projects for the Lyric, the Abbey, Accidental Theatre and c21.
