Rosemary Jenkinson is an acclaimed and prolific playwright whose plays include: The Bonefire, Planet Belfast, Here Comes the Night, Michelle and Arlene and Lives in Translation. She also writes short stories with her short story collection Catholic Boy was described by Mia Gallagher as “cunningly seductive, by turns raucous, wry and tender. A gifted storyteller, Jenkinson leavens even her darkest materials with biting, effervescent wit – while never breaking faith with the small, shabby realities of her endearing cast of liars, rogues, sex-addicts and former World Champion snooker players.”
