The Adjudicator – 2017


Over the years, Anna has adjudicated throughout the length and breadth of Ireland, and has been privileged to meet the most creative, talented and dedicated Theatre Practitioners, in the many unique Drama Festivals which welcome, support and nurture a host of travelling players and adjudicators.

Anna has an M.A. in Theatre Studies, and spends her working life totally immersed in a wide range of Drama disciplines and activities. She is Senior Drama Examiner with the Royal Irish Academy of Music, tutors Drama Students, and directs for a number of Acting Companies.

She trod the boards as an amateur actress with The Olivian Players in Dublin, where she won a host of best acting awards. The professional stage beckoned, and she relished the opportunity to work on stage, screen and television.

Anna is a regular visitor to London, where she engages in Courses with The Globe and The National Theatre. She has adjudicated The One Act All Ireland, The Confined Three Act All Ireland, and she is thrilled to have been asked to adjudicate The Open All Ireland in 2018.
