Airing on Tuesday 30th October on RTE, Juliette Crosbie will be featured in filmmaker Maurice O’Briens new documentary “The Abbey- A Riot Of Their Own”
Juliette is featured for her work in the one woman show, ‘Me, Sara’ last year. Written by Dylan Coburn Gray and directed by Amy Conroy, it toured for 3 months and was performed for thousands of school students in schools and theatres nationwide including The Peacock Theatre.
The show was part of the Priming The Canon programme which was designed to introduce Irish Canon plays through theatre in education and give many children their first experience of live theatre.
