What’s On

2020 Residency

AboutFACE are delighted to announce that we will be the Theatre Company in Residence at The Civic theatre in Tallaght, South Dublin for 2020!

We’ve got a very special history with the Civic, having now presented 6 different productions there, going back to our early days in 2003. We’re very excited to be making our home there in 2020 and about the projects we have planned for this year at the Civic.

Great Plays Gang

Are you looking for a fun creative outlet? Or maybe you did some acting in the past and would like to dip your toe in again? If so, you’ll love our Great Plays Gang!

It’s our online program that’s sort of like a cross between a book club and an acting class, where we explore a new play each month …


What’s Upcoming

January 2021

Transatlantic Tales 2020

What do you do during a lockdown, when your big June show has been cancelled? Well, put on a live digital international production spanning 5,000 km with over 20 artists of course!

We’re bringing together theatre artists from America and Ireland to create and perform eight new 3-minute plays – each set on a Zoom call, to be developed in May and performed via online video the first week of June. We’ll be pairing 8 of our Irish-based actors (the cast of our cancelled show) with 8 of our favourite US-based actors, plus 8 writers who’ve been featured in the past at our NEWvember Festival. We can’t wait!

Official Selection 2021 New York Origin 1st Irish Festival


If you missed the Live Premiere on June 6th 2020, you can now watch recordings of each of the 8 plays, plus the post-show Q&A, on our Youtube Channel.
