Walking up the town with my Granny for the daily shop and treat, and then, racing her home.

Other independent artists working to move forward in their field and never giving up.
Dream vacation spot?
Mountain Lake Hotel, Pembroke, Virginia (a.k.a. The Kellerman’s Resort in Dirty Dancing).
Favourite childhood toy?
The Fisher Price Musical Television that my grandmother gave to me as a child. It played and showed images from Frère Jacque and Sur le pont d’avignon. I still have it and still adore it.
Favourite comfort food?
In Montreal, poutine. In Dundalk, a curry chip, with raw onions on top, from Kieran’s.
Hailing from Dundalk, Laura has been popping up as a performer on the Montreal scene, ever since moving to Canada four years ago, having varied experience in character work, improvisation, story-telling, stand-up, singing, and theatre. As well as the 2016 Montreal Fringe version of Get Your Shuffle On, Laura has been involved in other productions at the Montreal Fringe over the years: Griffintown by Théâtre Rua in 2010 (co-devised and starred in); 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche by Village Scene Productions in 2015 (played the role of Ginny); and The Morning After The Life Before by Ann Blake in 2017 (managed public relations and co-produced). She has played the improv, stand-up comedy and storytelling scenes elsewhere in the world, including Ireland, Australia, London, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
