Corinna has recently finished her College course in Theatre Performance at ICFE and taken the ATCL exams in Speech & Drama and Musical Theatre.
Being member of NoDrama Theatre since 2016, she wrote for, acted and directed in several of their bi-annual “Shindigs“ and performs regularly at their monologue nights. She made her directorial debut with the original short play “Insomnia” in the 2018 Scene and Heard and was Assistant Director for NoDrama’s production of “Gaslight“ in December 2019.
She is beyond thrilled to have been chosen to direct “Seminar“ – despite all ups and downs during the last year“ – and can’t wait for people to hear the audio version, before we get to take the play to the stage in 2022.

Written By Alejandro Niklison and Directed by Terry Kenny, While a storm roars outside the window, Daniel dwells on the past. A voice guides him through visions of his mother, his father, and Tim. But memory is uncertain and, as the images contradict themselves, he starts to doubt his sanity and to wonder: what is this place, and to which point we can trust that what we remember is what happened?
Games is a play about abuse, guilt, and the uncertainty of memory.
Directed: by Terry Kenny
Cast: Alejandro Niklison, Andrei Callanan, Daniel O´Shea, Lisa Gallagher, Stephen Madden.

“Wine from Greenland”, an audioplay that explores the meaning of society and identity in the search for absolute freedom.
As Anton and Ian wait to be seated at a restaurant, a seemingly ordinary conversation leads them to a mutual realization about life and society: man is a caged animal, chained to social conventions, roles and relationships.

Will they find freedom or will they fail in their quest?
