At twenty-eight, writer and actor Stefanie Preissner, is blazing a trail as one of the most influential voices of her generation. Her latest project CAN’T COPE/WONT COPE, a six-part comedy-drama series, is currently screening on RTE 2.
Her one-woman theatre show, SOLPADEINE IS MY BOYFRIEND enjoyed sell-out runs in Dublin before touring internationally to Bucharest, Edinburgh and Australia and – as a radio play – it became RTE’s most downloaded podcast.
Alongside her career as a screenwriter and playwright, she has been nominated for several awards as an actor. Stefanie graduated from University College Cork with a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies and Spanish. Her work has also been explored in a chapter of “Radical Contemporary Theatre Practices by Women in Ireland” (Carysfort Press, 2015).
With support from the Irish Film Board, Stefanie’s next project is a screenplay in development with Parallel Films UK (BROOKLYN, THE CLINIC, INTERMISSION).
