An Evening With Fiona Shaw

In Conversation With Matthew Stadlen

Join Logo

The BAFTA and Olivier award-winning Irish actor and director explores her life and career on stage and screen.

From My Left Foot to Harry Potter, Fleabag to Killing Eve, Fiona Shaw is an integral presence in the Irish and British screen drama of the last three decades; and in collaboration with the foremost directors of our time – from Deborah Warner to Nicholas Hytner – is universally renowned as one of the most outstanding and distinguished stage actors of her generation.

Whether in her ground-breaking performance as Shakespeare’s Richard II or her unforgettable turn as Brecht’s Mother Courage, as Euripides’ Medea or Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, her work is experimental, provocative, and risk-taking, daring audiences to reassess what they thought they knew about theatre and the human condition.

In conversation with broadcaster, journalist and author Matthew Stadlen, she will explore her life’s journey, from her upbringing in Cork through to her BAFTA winning triumph in the BBC’s Killing Eve. It’s an unmissable evening for anyone who cares about the past, present and future of culture and the dramatic arts.
