by An Grianán Theatre
An Grianán Theatre is distinctive amongst regional venues for its success as a theatre producer.
We have staged many full scale productions over the years including works by Brian Friel, Martin McDonagh and John B Keane. Creative partners to date have included Yew Tree Theatre Company, Cork Opera House, Pavilion Theatre, Civic Theatre and The Lyric, Belfast.
In addition we have undertaken a number of community arts projects including large scale productions of The Winter’s Tale, Thomas Kilroy’s The O’Neill and Brian Friel’s The Aristocrats which afforded local amateur and semi-professional performers the opportunity to work alongside theatre professionals.
On a more intimate scale we have facilitated smaller scale dramas performed by local theatre practioners. These have included Brian Friel’s Molly Sweeney and Bill C Davis’ Mass Appeal.
We have also taken a number of projects out into the local community delivering workshops and performances from performers such as Little John Nee and the team behind Bassam.
We are also active members of the NASC and NOMAD theatre networks, a collective of regional theatres active in promoting quality touring productions.
Below is an archive of some of the productions and projects produced in-house by An Grianán.
