Stefanie Preissner

At twenty-eight, writer and actor Stefanie Preissner is blazing a trail as one of the most influential voices of her generation. Her six-part comedy-drama series Can't Cope/Won't Cope hit RTE2 screens in September 2016 and heralded a new era in Irish TV with its sharp observations on youth culture. It has been bought for broadcast by BBC Three and recommissioned by RTE for a second series.
Her one-woman theatre show, Solpadeine is My Boyfriend, enjoyed sell-out runs in Dublin before touring internationally to Bucharest, Edinburgh and Australia and - as a radio play - it became RTE's most downloaded podcast.
Alongside her career as a screenwriter and playwright, she has been nominated for several awards as an actor. Stefanie graduated from University College Cork with a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies and Spanish. Her work has also been explored in a chapter of Radical Contemporary Theatre Practices by Women in Ireland (Carysfort Press, 2015)
With support from the Irish Film Board, Stefanie's next project is a screenplay in development with Parallel Films (Brooklyn, The Clinic, Intermission). She is also developing a TV pilot with Channel 4 and has a series of short documentaries in production with RTE.
