“Excellent acting, superior direction, would cast several of the actors tomorrow” Audience member
Under the creative direction of Petal Pilley, the company have worked for the past nine years on developing a strong ensemble that has seen them play on the main stages of Ireland, where they rightly belong.
Of recent times, the actors have embraced the challenges of Shakespeare, worked with some of Ireland’s leading theatre practitioners and playwrights, played to capacity houses in major arts events – Galway International Arts Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival and Galway Theatre Festival – and been the subject of an award winning TV documentary Somebody to Love (RTE/Wildfire Films) .
The actors are also proud spokespeople for their work and have played a significant advocacy role, in particular with their performances of Sanctuary.
