By Martyna Lawton
—————————————-

‘TWITS *Disclaimer – not a pregnant goldfish*’ is a new one-woman play by Martyna Lawton.  It explores real life issues by combining styles of stand-up comedy, dramatized monologues and multimedia. This character driven performance aims to show the significance of expression. “By voicing our problems we win back some power in our lives and we are no longer just a bunch of twits”- Martyna.

At sixteen she became a member of a youth theatre group in Cork. Martyna continued her training in all aspects of the theatre and has since found her footing in the theatrical ‘scene’. Her theatre credits include ‘Cyrano De Bergerac’ -Kinsale Amphitheatre, ‘The Mai’- Cork Arts Theatre, ‘Carmen’ –Cork Opera House, and ‘Little Red Raving Mad’- An Spailpin Fanac. Martyna is currently trying her hand at scripting and comedic writing (‘Sixty Bales of Hay- by E.Z. Ryder’ and ‘The BG’s’). Always the optimist, Martyna hopes for a bright career within the industry.
