DRUID THEATRE'S artist development programme, FUEL, now in its sixth year, announced on Tuesday the recipients of the 2019/2020 bursary. The selected artists are Annie Keegan, Claire Mullane, Johanne Webb, and Barry Cullen.

FUEL is a nine-month programme offering artists a ticket bursary and a small showcase bursary in addition to the paid engagement days, workshops, residency, mentoring, hot desk space, and advice.

Annie Keegan is a playwright and graduate of NUI Galway’s MA in drama and theatre. For FUEL she will develop a new piece exploring ‘workism’ and consumerism. Claire Mullane is a director and dramaturg with a BA in drama and music from University College Cork, now resident in Galway. She is working on a piece inspired by Charlotte Perkin Gilman’s short story, 'The Yellow Wallpaper'.

Johanne Webb is a director and performer based in Galway. She will develop a new performance about unconscious bias and race in Ireland. Barry Cullen is a Sligo-based actor, producer, and theatre-maker. He will draw on his extensive movement training to create a non-verbal theatre piece about the human experience.
