Roseanna Purcell in Test Copy

The play follows Louise Fennessy, a Transition year student in St. Catherine’s Convent Secondary School which hosts over 700 female students in total. This isn’t an examination of the well-known quiet, country life but rather of the untempered frenzy of youth and the struggle to stand out, for reasons good or bad, amongst a melting pot of peers and diverse personalities. Through Louise, we experience the school’s explosive environment, where a culture of organised fights provides the on-site entertainment and the roughest of reputations instils respect.

Roseanna’s theatre credits include Signatories (Kilmainham Gaol + Olympia Theatre), Traitor (That Lot, Tiger Dublin Fringe), The Unsung Hero (Theatre Upstairs), Schooled (Scene&Heard Festival of new work), AnnaBellaEema (Rough Magic Seeds), The Windstealers (Eccles Theatre, Tiger Dublin Fringe), The Bridge Below The Town (Livin’ Dred Theatre Company), War Of Attrition (Devious Theatre Company; Dublin Fringe Festival Best Female Performer Nomination), Beyond The Brooklyn Sky (Red Kettle Theatre Company).
