Teaspach is a theatre and film Company that was formed in 2002 by aspiring Limerick based actors who came together through Centre Stage Theatre School for adults. Teaspach is an Irish word, with no direct translation into English. It means ‘verve’, of a fiery nature, taking chances, a character trait of someone or something to be reckoned with. Teaspach mainly focused on theatre up until now, so this is a new direction for the company. “As a company we have learned so much, making a film is so different to theatre” explained Karen. “We are bursting to do the next film and it is brilliant to be part of a local film festival”. This year marks the 7th year of the Limerick Film Festival, which as the brainchild of LIT lecturer and Festival Director Simon McGuire.
Karen is a founding member of Teaspach Theatre Company and has co-produced and performed in all their productions to date. She was a student of CentreStage Theatre School for 2 years and she also trained with the Gabriel Wallace School of Speech & Drama. Karen is a Licentiate of Trinity College London in performance and teaching and currently teaches Creative Drama and Speech Drama to various community groups in Limerick.
