Devious Theatre were founded in Kilkenny in 2006. We perform different works in different spaces for different audiences using different methods. Our work hops genre but stays rooted in a style of comedy we have honed over the years. We don’t like labels. Thus, our artistic credo is mostly ADHD based and fairly guerrilla. To this end, our goal is to kidnap as many young people away from gigs and cinemas and pubs and drag them to the theatre. We have performed 24 shows to date, have won a PPI Award for Radio Drama and have had our work featured at Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Galway Theatre Festival, Electric Picnic, Quarter Block Party, Collaborations Festival, Abhainn Rí Festival, Cavan Theatre Festival and The Theatre Machine Turns You On amongst others. We were the first theatre artists in residence in Kilkenny Arts Office with our In The Future When All’s Well residency in 2011 where we performed the trilogy of Scratcher, Shifting and Smitten over a 7-month period.
Our core company members are Ken McGuire, Kevin Mooney, Niamh Moroney and John Morton.
