“a wonderfully moving, politically challenging, and powerfully unsettling experience. Prepare to beshaken out of your comfort zone.” – The Arts Review (Iphigenia in Splott by Gary Owen)

★★★★

There’s a dark heartbreak at the centre of “We Can’t Have Monkeys In The House” which its wild, delicious humour wonderfully underscores. Something its four strong cast dazzlingly convey, as well as delivering some laugh out loud moments. — The Arts Review (We Can’t Have Monkeys in the House by Ciara Elizabeth Smyth)

Currently Killian is continuing his work alongside Aisling Byrne on the development of several film pieces, including short film Turnaround, which is funded by Screen Ireland’s Focus Shorts Scheme, made with Arcade Film, and due to premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh 2024. In addition to this, he is exploring opportunities for This Solution to tour internationally, film development with Shaun Dunne, while also working on a suite of film, theatre, and artist development projects with Run of the Mill, backed by the Arts Council’s Arts Grants funding for 2024.
