no drama bookworms

Do you like scripts? Do you like reading? Do you want to have a say in what productions No Drama Theatre put in?
Then we are looking for you!

We’re very excited to introduce to you No Drama Bookworms, led by Declan Ryan.

The Bookworms will be meeting weekly, working their way through play scripts delivered by, well, you! These scripts can be old. They can be new. They can be comedy, horror, mystery, drama… you get it. The only criteria we have is that the group has not already performed it!

We will be looking for approximately 10 members, who will be reading and shortlisting potential future productions for No Drama Theatre. We recommend any members interested in directing or assistant directing a main production, to join the group.

So what do you have to do to join the No Drama Bookworms?

• Submit a piece you want the Bookworms to read.
• Write a short synopsis about the play you submitted, why it should be considered and what you particularly like about the script.
• Give us a brief outline of your experience in Theatre and with No Drama Theatre.

Email us at before Monday the 1st of March.

We look forward to seeing your applications! ♥️

the next director

Good evening beautiful people, just in case you missed our winter production announcement at our Shindig after-party- here it is…in writing!

A woman of such talent, wit, humour, intelligence and comedic timing like no other needs no introduction, but here it is anyway because dammmn we are beyond excited for this! This year’s winter production, will be directed by the one and only – Corinna Reichle! Hi – it’s me. she’s natural.she’s approachable.she is just like one of you.

Corinna has been a member of No Drama Theatre for the past 4 years. She started out as a loyal workshop-attendee (and the pub-after-goer… remember the pub after a workshop?); then soon began helping out backstage at No Drama Shows.

She has written, directed and performed in several of the Shindigs and the (BYO) Monologue Nights and had the pleasure of facilitating a couple of the No Drama Workshops. In 2018 she developed her 10-minute Shindig piece „Insomnia“ further and took it to Smock Alley Theatre’s Scene + Heard Festival.

Outside of No Drama Theatre, Corinna has worked as (Assistant) Stage Manager and Assistant Director for several productions around Dublin and just came back from Assistant Directing two plays in Berlin. Before they locked down.

She finished the Advanced Performance Course in the Gaiety School of Acting and an Introduction to the Meisner Technique and is currently in her third and final year of studying Theatre Performance in Inchicore College for Further Education.

After having been Assistant Director for No Drama’s last main production „Gaslight“ in winter 2019 she is now super happy to have been selected Director for this one. In such strange and unprecedented times, too.

It’s going to be a bit different, but she is up for all the challenges the Corona-Pandemic will be throwing at this production and is looking forward to get her amazing crew and euphoric cast assembled.

There you have it folks, get excited, get involved, get READY.

Because we definitely are 😉

The show will in fact, go ON!🎭
