We are a venue-based professional theatre ensemble. Our company and our venue The Factory Performance Space were founded in 1991.We produce between four and six professional productions every year, with an emphasis on staging modern European classics, new writing and new adaptations for stage. We employ a repertory system to tour each of these productions throughout Ireland and internationally. We provide a broad range of professional arts related support for community and cultural programming within our immediate region
