Suzanne LaGrande interviews award-winning screenwriter, film director, and director Gemma Whelan. Whelan is the artistic director and founder of the Corrib theater, a theater in Portland Oregon dedicated to producing plays by contemporary Irish playwrights. In this episode of Disobedient Femmes, Whelan discusses immigrating from Ireland to study theater in the Bay Area, being one of the few women theater directing students at UC Berkeley, why she founded the Corrib Theater and how contemporary Irish plays are an important mirror for what is happening in the U.S. at present. Gemma Whelan is an Irish-born theatre director and educator. Gemma has directed more than seventy-five stage productions and is also an award-winning screenwriter, film director, and published novelist.
