Irish playwright Elaine Murphy’s debut play, Little Gem, premiered at The Civic Theatre as part of The Dublin Fringe Festival in 2008 and played to packed audiences during its sell out run. The play won the Fishamble New Writing Award and a nomination for Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards before transferring to Edinburgh’s Traverse Theatre, where it won the 2009 Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award.

Elaine’s second play, Ribbons, was commissioned by the Abbey Theatre for The Fairer Sex, a series of short plays from leading female playwrights. Elaine is the winner of the Stewart Parker BBC Northern Ireland Drama Award for 2009 and was chosen as a participant of ‘Six in the Attic’, an initiative funded by the Irish Arts Council.   In this podcast Elaine is in conversation with Jho Harris about her past successes and her upcoming play at The Civic Theatre, ‘Shush’
