Designers of the future
The Yeats Design Residency is an innovative partnership between the Abbey Theatre and IT Sligo to help nurture the talents of young theatre designers in Ireland. Students were asked to create a model set for A Cry from Heaven by Vincent Woods and The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh. Similar to professional set designers, they worked within a design brief, budget and timeline as part of the project. Sonia Norris from Fivemilebourne, County Leitrim was one of seven finalists shortlisted for this year’s Yeats Design Residency.
