Examining Teresa Deevy's Critique of Gender Roles in Katie Roche

This paper explores Teresa Deevy’s 1936 play Katie Roche as a subversive text used to critique the cultural and political enforcement of traditional gender roles in Irish society, relying on a textual analysis of Katie Roche, contemporary reviews of its original performance, and current scholarship in Irish theater studies to examine the play’s critique of gender roles within its cultural and historical context.

About Me

In 2016, I graduated from Fordham University with a B.A. in Medieval Studies and an honors certificate in American Catholic Studies. I have completed several internships in the non-profit arts and cultural sector. My most recent professional experience was at The History Center (Linn County Historical Society) in Cedar Rapids, IA.  My past experience and education have given me experience with marketing, research, event management, non-profit development, and social media management. 

In addition to my professional work, I am involved in the active theatre community of Iowa's Cultural Corridor region. I have been involved in acting, tech work, and directing at multiple theatres in this area.  I am currently the chair of the Marketing Committee at Starlighters II Theatre, where I have been managing the theatre's social media accounts, developing new marketing channels, and working on new audience development initiatives. My other contributions to local arts and culture include serving on the board of directors of the Grant Wood Art Gallery in Anamosa.
