Welcome to Equity in Theatre

Murphy, Shannon


Shannon Murphy is an Irish gal, raised in Calgary where she studied Kinesiology at the University of Calgary. A recent graduate of George Brown Theatre School, she is making her plunge into the Toronto scene as a Young Innovator with Nightwood Theatre and as part of the newly formed company, Kindling Collective. This company was formed as a reaction to the constraints she witnessed in the opportunities for women to explore powerful roles and the lack of diversity put into the casting in classical theatre. Past Credits: Lucy (The Enchanted), Eileen (The Cripple of Inishmaan), Beatrice (The Changeling) GBTS, Philomele (Love of the Nightingale), Delilah Rose (Ernestine Shuswap Gets Her Trout), Cordelia (Lear's Daughters) UofC. You can also catch Shannon in December in HERstory Counts' SILENCED, where she will be bringing her own story to fruition on the stage.
