In this episode of Woman Up!, I am in conversation with the hugely impressive, and multi-passionate Ceara Carney. As an actor, Ceara trained at Bow Street Academy, after completing her BA in Performance Arts at Dundalk I.T. She has toured extensively in Ireland and Europe, and will be recognised by many from Vodafone's Each Christmas. Currently, she is touring various venues around Ireland with Quintessence Theatre's The Curious Case of Albert Cashier. You can find out more about Albert here, and you can find out about the remaining tour dates here. As a writer, Ceara's first radio play, Frizzy Lizzy was produced by RTÉ, and aired most recently in September of this year. Ceara's day job is also in the Theatre, as she is part of the team at Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin. Outside of Theatre, Ceara is a passionate environmental activist – creating and participating in spectacle displays with Extinction Rebellion Ireland. She also produces her own podcast, Book of Leaves, which concerns itself with sustainable living. The books we mentioned during our chat were 'Humankind A Hopeful History' and 'Utopia for Realists And How We Can Get There', both written by Rutger Bregman; and 'Why Women Are Poorer Than Men and What We Can Do About It' by Annabelle Williams. If you would like to contact Ceara, you can contact her through her agency. Finally – I must apologise for the audio in this episode – I had twitchy WiFi at some points in the recording. I do hope that doesn't affect your listening pleasure too much. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
