35 years on, with an Irish husband and children and a career as an Irish author, Kate brings the wisdom and wit of her award-winning writing to audiences in person for the first time, to whom she asks, ‘Am I Irish Yet?’.

Am I Irish Yet? is part of Circus250’s Daring Dames series, reflecting their commitment to developing and touring exciting new work by fierce women. Westival is the oldest music and arts festival in the West of Ireland.
