Stefanie Preissner

Stefanie Preissner, Munich-born but Mallow raised, is the creator of hit comedy-drama series Can’t Cope Won’t Cope – the show was originally commissioned by RTÉ and has since broadcast on BBC Three. Season two is currently in production. She has also produced a series of short documentaries, How to Adult, with RTÉ Player.

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 RTÉ’s most downloaded podcast.

Stefanie graduated from University College Cork with a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies and Spanish. Alongside her career as a screenwriter and playwright, she has won several awards as an actor.

She is currently working on a screenplay for Parallel Films with support from the Irish Film Board and developing a TV pilot with Channel 4. Why Can’t Everything Just Stay the Same? is her first book.
