He has worked for the Abbey Theatre, the Lyric and other companies in Ireland; he has directed work for the Royal Shakepeare Company, English National Opera and the Royal National Theatre London as well as working in many other countries. During his residency he will concentrate on an new play Patrick's Day on Montserrat. Montserrat is an actively volcanic island.
