About Us

We Are Theatre Change Makers

Originally founded in 1996, Blue Teapot has evolved from a community arts project within the Brothers of Charity Services Galway to become an award winning independent theatre company that supports an increasingly rich and diverse practice.

We work to radically transform theatre practices by telling stories through the lens of disability, paving the way for inclusive practices to become the norm. By pushing the boundaries of what is possible, we celebrate creativity and challenge the narrative about intellectual disability. Our focus and commitment is centred on three priorities:

Production – creating brave, challenging, intrepid theatre.

Progression – nurturing creativity and talent.

Provision – owning the space, developing infrastructure and quality outputs.
