Ireland Derry (CASSIDY) grew up inside theater walls. Her father entertained the curiosity of walking a mile in others’ shoes from which her love for storytelling was born. Ireland debuted in her first play, RIDE by Eric Lane, at none too fragile theater in 2012. Since then, she has been involved in the behind-the-scenes work at none too fragile as well as being featured in the NYC Premiere of POSSUM DREAMS in 2014 and starring in THE WHALE by Samuel Hunter during the spring of 2017. Ireland is thrilled to venture outside of her theater home at NTF and work at Dobama Theatre under Nathan Motta's direction and next to such an incredibly talented cast and crew. She has been raised in the Northeast Ohio theater scene and is delighted to work among so many of its talented performers!
