Hi! Bonjour! Привет!
I'm Aisling (pronounced Ash-ling). My pronouns are she/her.
I'm currently based in Toronto, ON, on the traditional unceded and unsurrendered territory of Tkaronto.
Thanks for visiting my website!
Feel free to contact me for:
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Aisling is a playwright, critic, dramaturge, and academic.
In 2020, Aisling's first play, Feast, was developed with the Tarragon Theatre Young Playwrights Unit in Toronto; following the closures spurred by COVID-19, Feast was granted an #ArtApart grant by the National Theatre School of Canada.
Feast is featured as a short case study in the Routledge anthology, Undergraduate Research in Theatre.
Aisling graduated Magna Cum Laude with her Honours BA in Theatre from the University of Ottawa in June 2021, and is currently pursuing her MA in Theatre, Drama, and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto.
She's also a Taurus (if that wasn't abundantly clear), and has a cat named Fig.
