Theatre Awards Judges

14th January 2010 by Maura McHugh

The The Irish Times has announced its judges for the 2009 Irish Times Theatre Awards – the nominees for the awards will appear in the Weekend Review on Saturday.

Christine Madden is a writer, translator, dramaturg and arts journalist. She works as dance and theatre critic, primarily for The Irish Times, as well as reporting on the performing arts.

Jack Gilligan, recently retired Dublin City Arts Officer, has seen about 2,000 professional theatre performances. His involvement in professional performance began 25 years ago, as a Local Authority employee, promoting professional theatre and dance in community venues and schools in Co Dublin, many in association with the Dublin Theatre Festival.

Bernadette Madden remains from the 2009 judging panel. She was born in Dublin, and has been working as a painter and printmaker since graduating from the National College of Art and Design.
