“Sitting in the Town Hall Theatre for the Cúirt / Over The Edge New Writing Showcase, I experienced the visceral feeling of this is exactly where I’m meant to be...  the entire Cúirt staff have created something beautiful and vibrant, a festival that is galvanising and utterly alive. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the opportunity to have been a small part of it." - James O'Leary, bursary recipient 2016
