• Bio

    Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Aisling is a journalist, theatre critic, and occasional playwright. She primarily writes about Toronto theatre and Taylor Swift.


    Aisling is a breaking news reporter at CP24, senior editor at Intermission Magazine, and former president of the Canadian Theatre Critics Association. She previously wrote for the Toronto Star. Her writing was featured a bunch of places prior to joining the Toronto Star team, including The Fulcrum and Maclean's.


    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 was then developed at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Djanet Sears. 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. She has an MA in Theatre, Drama, and Performance Studies from the University of Toronto.


    She's a Taurus (if that wasn't abundantly clear) and she has two cats named Fig and June. She lives in East York with her husband.
