Spotlight on our theatre academics: a busy summer and future highlights

Miriam and Aidan Dooley, Lecturers in Performing Arts and Musical Theatre, share their busy summer with us and the projects we can look forward to in the coming months.

Their summer began with a tour in Canada, followed by a project for the whole summer at The Historic Dockyard Chatham. Families were delighted with a children’s show to accompany the Monsters of the Deep exhibition. In Ireland, Aidan had an amazing two-week run of Tom Crean at The Olympia, a large Dublin theatre. This has been accompanied by a fantastic line-up of radio shows, TV and online press in Ireland. After the sell-out tour in Ireland, they’re looking forward to a UK tour this October.  You can find out more about their work and youth projects on the Play on Words Theatre webpage.

Upcoming Theatrical Projects

In future work, Miriam has been commissioned to write another show. Whilst currently in research and development stage, she has already had a short performance in Gravesend with the Mayor and cultural stakeholders in the audience.

In collaboration with Chris Price, Senior Lecturer in Music, Miriam will be performing in An Evening with Aphra Behn as part of the Canterbury Festival 2023. This performance forms part of Canterbury’s Aphra Behn project, a year long series of events celebrating the local 17th Century female author, playwright and poet.

Plus watch out for the 2024 production of Shakespeare on the Pond in collaboration with the University!
