Companies

Accidental Theatre is a collision of perspectives, art forms and unusual collaborations – curious stories told through vibrant, ambitious performances.

We work with playwrights, actors, filmmakers, DJs, choreographers, musicians, poets, painters, technicians and curators to craft plays for Ireland and the world stage. Every production is a fresh invention, each play’s architecture defined by the artists with whom we build it. Collective risk-taking is the inspiration that jolts our work into new theatrical territories and opens it up to new audiences.

Accidental walks the tightrope between the unexpected and the impossible, exploring the intersection between British narrative and European aesthetic styles of theatre.

TOURING POLICY

We tour work throughout Ireland, the United Kingdom and internationally.
