YER WAN Niamh’s self penned, performed, and produced comedy show toured nationally to sell out venues in 2014/15 and won “Best Solo Performance” at Galway Fringe Festival. Her current work PULLED, a follow up comedy to YER WAN is developed with Central Arts and Devious Theatre as part of Devious’ 10 year anniversary programme.
