Powerscourt Theatre present BEEZIE

Powerscourt Theatre is delighted to bring “ Beezie” back to Dublin this Summer with a lunchtime performance by Sheila Flitton of her one-woman show. In the play, Beezie tells of her youth, her friendship with the young W.B. Yeats, her brief marriage in mid-life, her rescue from the Great Famine and her moving and hilarious campaign of resistance and escape from the County Home. Sheila Flitton has 35 years experience in theatre, TV and film.

She has written three novels and several plays, including ‘For Better or For Worse’ which won a Listowel Writers Award and premiered in the US, Harbour Nights, Voices from the Past, which was produced as a radio play for RTÉ and Money is The Root, which, after being staged in Dublin, RTÉ commissioned a six part adaptation.

TV credits include Glenroe (Josie), The Irish RM, The Snapper and Lilac Bus among many others. She was nominated for best actress in the Irish Times Theatre Awards in 2004.
