Applications are now open for our annual Marie Mullen Bursary

12 September 2022

The Marie Mullen Bursary is an annual award for female theatre artists working in Ireland in the fields of design, directing and dramaturgy.

Applications for the 2023 Marie Mullen Bursary are now open. The deadline for applications is Friday 14 October at 5pm.

Named in honour of actor and Druid co-founder, Marie Mullen, the bursary is intended to address the historic imbalance of female representation in theatre and to support the professional development of women in Irish theatre.

The bursary is open to female designers, directors and dramaturgs who have a proven commitment to Irish theatre and are currently residing on the island of Ireland.

This bursary provides a female theatre artist with the time, physical resources and mentoring necessary to support their work.

The Marie Mullen Bursary is supported by Thomas Campbell Jackson & Penny Jackson.
