With comedian and actor PJ Gallagher Una has co-written Separated at Birth (2015) and Madhouse (2018). Based on the circumstances of PJ’s unusual upbringing in Marino, Madhouse was a critical and commercial success when it premiered during Dublin Fringe Festival at The Abbey Theatre on The Peacock Stage. In 2019 Madhouse completed an extensive and sold out National Tour directed by Una McKevitt and was set to transfer to Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre before the Coronavirus Pandemic shut down the sector. Una has worked as a director with renowned European theatre makers Rimini Protokoll as well as with comedians Maeve Higgins (Moving City 2013) and Joanne McNally (Bite Me 2016).
In June 2021 her play One Good Turn premiered on The Abbey stage, Dublin to a live stream audience.
