Behind the Scenes Bursaries Artist in residence 2022
Hawk’s Well Theatre are delighted to have Actor and Playwright Miriam Needham working with the venue as Artist in residence, funded by Arts Council Ireland.

Manorhamilton’s Miriam Needham is a Lecoq-trained actor, theatre-maker and voice-over artist. In 2021 Miriam brought her new theatre production ‘Snapshot’ to fruition. Snapshot is a play set in the early days of the first lockdown, and is inspired by interviews with locals about their experience of that time, piecing together memories, thoughts, feelings, and stories to make a local record of a global event. Snapshot has toured Ireland in 2022 thanks to funding from the Arts Council.

On her Hawk’s Well Theatre Residency award Miriam says “I am delighted to continue working with the Hawk's Well Theatre. I'm so glad to have the opportunity to present 'Snapshot' to the public this year, as well as working on other projects. This residency provides me with structure, stability, and support - three things that are invaluable to any artist. I am grateful to the Hawk's Well Theatre and to the Arts Council for making this happen, and excited about the possibilities it unfolds.”
