Like so many Canadian theatre artists, Ciarán hyphenates his practice across multiple disciplines. He has an MFA in Writing from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and his plays have been staged in Canada, England, Scotland, and the United States, winning minor awards. He has two books of poetry with micro-publishers and is a once-Champion Irish Dancer. Ciarán is a dad in Kitchener Ontario where the theatre scene has been producing almost exclusively world premieres. He is currently wrapping up his tenure as The Theatre Centre's first Metcalf Intern. He is learning to play the drum kit.
