I chanced upon this and was glad I did. If the performance we saw is anything to go by, then do go, it was brilliant. At the moment they are performing on the top floor of the Powerscourt Townhouse, it was only about 6 or...More

I don't think the May 2018 calendar has be confirmed yet. I did hear that the theatre is moving back to Bewley's Cafe on Grafton Street before the end of the year. It has been "housed" in the Powerscourt Townhouse Centre... More
