Liam McCarthy delighted to be Belltable Artist in Residence for 2021.
The primary focus of Liam’s residency is the development of his new play Mam and Love and Woo, a play about a mother and a son living in Limerick City. The play grapples with evolving family dynamics within a rapidly changing urban environment. While serious in theme, this play is also optimistic and joyful. It was originally a Belltable:Connect commission. The script was awarded the Wilde Irish Writer Bursary from Dublin Fringe Festival in December 2020.
Liam will be supported by Belltable as he develops the play through workshops and a rehearsed reading, working toward a full production in 2022.
As part of his residency, Liam will also work on Bualadh Bos Children’s Festival with the Lime Tree Theatre and Belltable team.
