My Name is Saoirse (winner of the First Fortnight Award at the Dublin Fringe 2014, an Argus Angel Award at the Brighton Fringe 2015 and the Best Theatre Award at the Adelaide Fringe 2017, produced as a radio play for RTE Radio One)


Overshadowed (winner of the Fishamble Award 2015 for Best New Writing and now a series on BBC Three) 

The Friday Night Effect 


MUSTARD ( winner of Scotsman Fringe First Award 2019 and nominated for Scottish Mental Health Award 2019) 


The playwright and performer Eva O’Connor’s writing in this one-woman show, the story of a girl named E, is so scarring and funny, so laden with jealousy and hate and wickedness, you have to take time away and breath out, then pick it up a few verses later.

The Scotsman ★★★★ (MUSTARD)


"A remarkably rich portrait of an entire society on the verge of change."

The Scotsman ★★★★ (My Name is Saoirse)


"A brilliant new TV show about anorexia? Yes, it's Overshadowed ."

The Irish Times  (Overshadowed for BBC Three)


"Overshadowed succeeds on two levels – as an insightful personal explanation of what it’s like to have anorexia, and as a rallying-cry for belief in recovery"

Fringe Guru ★★★★ (Overshadowed)


Cleverly conceived and well acted, as a social experiment it works, and as a story, it’s one worth hearing

The Irish Times ★★★★★  (The Friday Night Effect.) 


"The climate crisis that you have been warned about has already happened in Afloat, an entertaining and enlightening new play from Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan."

 The Irish Times ★★★★★ (Afloat)
