About

Historically home to St. Mary's convent and St. Joseph's school in the 19th and early 20th century, the award-winning Playhouse Theatre is based in Artillery Street and was established in 1992 with a grant of just £300. Since then it has grown to become one of Ireland’s leading award-winning multi-disciplinary Community Art Resource Centres based on a neutral site within the city centre. It is a self-help, grass roots, bottom-up community development project which is people centred and has charitable status.

Since re-opening, the Playhouse has been nominated for, and won some, prestigious awards for the design of the building. The Playhouse comprises of a 175 Seat Theatre, an extensive award winning Education and Outreach Department, a Dance Studio, a gallery and is home to several cultural/art based groups and tenants. The Playhouse filled (and continues to fill) a large gap in the provision of the arts in the North West. It also is one of only a handful of venues commissioning, producing and touring theatre in the island of Ireland.
