SEARCH FOR A PLAY FOR IRELAND
As part of this their 30th year, Fishamble: The New Play Company also set out to find one, big, ambitious play, that bursts with humanity and tackles a subject about which the playwright feels passionate - A PLAY FOR IRELAND. Fishamble is halfway through their two-year process, which encouraged the citizens of Ireland, and non-Irish citizens living on the island of Ireland, to write plays, engaging people aged 18+, from all communities, throughout the country. The initiative is underway with 30 new plays being developed. The result will be the production of a very special new play. A Play for Ireland is run in partnership with six venues across the country, in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, Galway and Belfast: Belltable / Lime Tree Theatre, Draíocht, Everyman, Lyric Theatre, Pavilion Theatre, Town Hall Theatre.
As well as that, Fishamble also toured:
