After serving as the Regional Representative to the Dramatists Guild for the city of Washington, DC for six years, Suilebhan was elected to the Dramatists Guild Council in 2017. He serves on both the Council’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee and its Political Engagement committee, working to secure a more just future for the Guild, its members, and theater artists everywhere.
Nationally, Suilebhan serves as the Project Director of the New Play Exchange, the world’s largest digital library of scripts by living writers, for the National New Play Network. The NPX, as the platform has known, has been providing a transparent, egalitarian way for producers and writers to connect with each other since early 2015.
Suilebhan’s advocacy work in his home city centers on an ongoing multi-year demographic analysis of the plays, playwrights, and directors that make up the DC theater ecosystem. In addition, Suilebhan co-founded The Welders, a Helen Hayes Award-winning DC-based playwrights collective designed to put writers in control of their own creative destinies.
