We’re celebrating the arrival of summer by releasing some video of our summer set production of Smitten by John Morton. The play itself takes place over a rain sodden summer in Kilkenny so we earnestly hope we can avoid another miserable summer this year. But considering our 2008 and 2011 summer productions of Smitten took […]

Last Friday’s National Campaign For The Arts free hugs event was a huge success and one we were very proud to be part of. It was fantastic to see such a huge mobilisation of Kilkenny’s arts community, all coming together for the one cause. With the budget coming up, it’s important that we are lobbying […]

Coming Soon

One of our regular troupe and sometimes company photographer, Mr. Ross Costigan is launching his first photgraphic exhibition this week. Considering his background in theatre and film, it’s quite aptly theatrically cinematic. Entitled Coming Soon, it’s a selection of fake movie posters set around various Kilkenny locales and features a spread of our acting ensemble […]

Today’s our last day in Kilkenny Arts Office. We’ve spent the past 2 weeks cleaning up the mess from the end of In The Future When All’s Well.

After putting out a Scratcher piece here, we’re now showing off one of the most popular scenes from Shifting. It might look like a bunch of drunk […]

Smitten wrapped on Saturday night to its eight standing ovation of eight performances and a packed (noisy and sweaty) house in Kilkenny Arts Office. In short, it went really very well and the feedback to the show was absolutely spectacular. We enjoyed some lovely compliments and warm, receptive audiences. In fact, as the parting shot […]

Suzanne O’Brien has previously performed for us in Heart Shaped Vinyl, Cannibal! The Musical, Trainspotting and the first version of Smitten. Here, she returns as the mysterious Daffney Molloy. What can you tell us, if anything, about Daffney Molloy? She’s a absolute doll. I’m afraid that if I say anything else, I’ll be cut from […]
