We are so so proud to announce the directorial team for our upcoming Summer Production!

For our ten year anniversary play, we have decided to hand the reigns over to one of the founding fathers of this here drama group and there could be no better choice than Dave “Level 7” McGowan! And who could be a better side kick than his Harvey compatriot Ms Kate “Chaotic Good” Cosgrave!

Together they will be taking on Smock Alley Theatre’s Main Stage, in the first week of July.
Auditions will be held in the second half of March.

More details on the auditions and the production will be announced next month.

Crew Call

Its summer production time down here at Synge Street. Director Louise Dunne is set to take to a main production where no main production has gone before: Smock Alley Theatre’s Main Stage! The play will run from the 4th to the 8th of July but if it is going to do so, it will require your help.

We need people to help out in a number of key positions both in management and backstage. If you don’t have experience in a position that you are interested in then we are always happy to provide training. If you have ever worked backstage you know how fun and rewarding it can be to help put on a show and this promises to be quite the show! In particular, we are looking for Prop Master as a matter of priority, which involves assisting with the sourcing of props and taking charge of them during the performance.

If you wish to get stuck in or think you might be able to help out in promoting the play then please contact Louise at loudunne at

Tickets for said production are available here!
