More support for Liverpool Mural Project from one of Ireland’s major contemporary playwrights

Peter Sheridan is one of Ireland's major contemporary playwrights, as well as a screenwriter, actor, and film director. His short film The Breakfast won several European Awards and his first feature film script Borstal Boy was released in 2000. He received the Rooney Prize for Literature in 1977 and was Writer-in-Residence at The Abbey Theatre in 1980. Forty Four, Peter’s memoir about his Dublin childhood became a best seller.

“What a brilliant proposal! I totally support you and wish you the best of luck!”

Together with his brother, Oscar-winning filmmaker Jim Sheridan, Peter Sheridan helped found the Project Arts Centre, Dublin's pre-eminent avant-garde theatre. Peter Sheridan's plays have also been performed at other leading theatres, including London's Royal Court Theatre and Dublin's Abbey Theatre.
