Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.




Eugene O'Brien is a Dublin-based writer and actor. His 2001 play Eden won an Irish Times award for best new play, and the Stewart Parker Prize. It was staged at the Arts Theatre, in London's West End, and on Broadway, subsequent to runs on the Abbey Theatre's Peacock and main stages. It has since been translated into a number of languages and turned into a successful 2008 film. O'Brien has also written for television, including the IFTA-winning RTÉ series Pure Mule in 2005.
