Gerry Lee

Gerard Lee got his ‘Equity Card’ in 1988. Since then he has been working as an actor, writer and director, and has also worked as an occasional tutor on various Performing Arts courses in the ETB Colleges of Further Education. His novel Forsaken is published by New Island, and his plays have been produced in Bewley’s Café Theatre, Theatre Upstairs, the New Theatre and the Viking. Gerard is particularly interested in how the industry can help to create more opportunities for younger actors, and also in addressing the isolation often experienced by freelance arts workers.
