On the 89th episode of FNI Wrapchat is Actor, Playwright and Screenwriter CLARE DUNNE.
A wonderful chat about making opportunities for yourself, Sharon Horgan empowering you and how Meryl Streep popped into her dressing room. Clare also tells us about her long and ultimately fruitful Journey of her Script "Herself" which was subsequently made and will Screen at Sundance in 2020. Herself looks at a single mother in Dublin, taking the bull by the horns and creating a self build home for herself and children during one of the worst housing crisis's in Ireland's history and how people, the community and the Irish spirit... is what will get us out.
