Tiarnán McCartney

Tiarnans Headshot

Tiarnán McCartney is 19 years old and has lived in Derry, Northern Ireland all his life. Ever since Tiarnán can remember he as always loved language; playing with words, making up stories and telling people lies. Tiarnán has always had great love for music and film and has experience writing for music magazines and local newspapers, though he has only recently stumbled upon the wonder of theatre and is now completely hooked. Tiarnán is looking forward to developing his use of language and meeting fellow aspiring writers.

Tiarnán has a crazy plan to move to Berlin in September and hopes one day to make a little money from his words.

Niamh Meehan – Young Critic On The Edge

Niamh Meehan is an Irish undergraduate student of English Literature and Creative Writing in the city of York. Her passions are orientated around what the humanities and arts can do for people; of how they can mobilise the diversity of creative human endeavour at the level of words. She is interested in many different dimensions of literary and artistic forms; from gender studies to theatre adaptation, scriptwriting to literary theory. She hopes to cultivate these interests through a holistic education, with hopes to develop a specialism in the near future.

Come join Young Critics On The Edge at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on July 7th  in the Parkside Building, Lecture Theatre from 5-6.30 to hear the Young Critics critical responses to several productions from On The Edge .
