About the company

Oisin McKenna

Oisin McKenna is described by the Irish Times as “one of the most promising spoken word artists in the country, who avoids misty-eyed accounts of society and instead cuts through with brilliant observational political commentary.” Using humour and satire his work explores complex political issues from a queer perspective. Recently, he was commissioned by Paines Plough to develop his short play Snowflake and perform it as part of Come To Where I’m From at Dublin Theatre Festival 2017. Writing credits include Gays Against the Free State (Dublin Fringe Festival, 2016, Judges Choice Award nominee); GRINDR / A Love Story (Dublin Fringe Festival 2013). In June 2017, his performance video ‘Gay, Male, Votes Fine Gael’, was viewed over 120,000 times on Facebook over the course of 3 days, sparking national debate in Ireland, as well as gaining national and international media coverage.
