Noelle Brown Dingle Literary Festival 2020

The Dingle Literary Festival welcomed Noelle Brown in 2020. Noelle is originally from Cork and has been a freelance actor since 1987. Her recent Theatre, TV and Performance work includes: The Unmanageable Sisters (Abbey Theatre), Postscript  (Abbey Theatre/Peacock) Ripper Street (Tiger Aspect) Fair City (RTE) Speeches of Note (Pavillion Dun Laoghaire) Something Unspoken (Bewley’s Café Theatre) The Touching Contract (Jesse Jones and Sarah Browne) and Monday’s Child (Barnstorm/UK Tour & Irish Tour)

Noelle Brown’s acclaimed play Postscript is inspired by her own experiences of being a child adopted from the home, and her 12-year search to uncover her true identity.

Noelle was in conversation with Caelainn Hogan to explore Ireland’s ongoing legacy of institutionalisation and the importance of breaking silences.

The Dingle Literary Festival was established in 2019 to create an annual book festival to bring readers and authors together in West Kerry. It’s a literary festival that celebrates living writers as well as honouring the literary heritage of the area. Festival events happen in both Irish and English and range across all genres and age groups. We present both author events and writers’ workshops.

Our vision is of a festival where literature, language and landscape converge to create moments to share stories, to connect minds and allow magic to blossom. It’s a place that sparks discussion, fosters innovation and collaboration in the arts and creates a multigenerational community of readers and writers.

The Dingle Literary Festival is a book festival that elevates and celebrates the richness of Irish language and literature in contemporary life. We encourage a vibrant, relevant literary community to support both established and emerging writers.
