Hare & Tortoise

Who's the fastest; who's the best? Who will finally win the race? Younger, fitter Hare - tearing around, unable to wait - or slow and steady Tortoise - taking the time to look at the stars?

Faith in the establishment collapsing everywhere. The far-right on the march. Culture wars and random violence - all decked out in red, white and blue. But a spirit of anarchy hangs in the air, the desire to burn it all down and start over.

Previews from: Thursday 15 February 2018
Closes: Saturday 10 March 2018

The Plough and the Stars

The residents of a Dublin tenement shelter from the violence. A revolution that will shape the country's future rages around them. Set amid the tumult of the Easter Rising, the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time.

Previews from: Thursday 15 March 2018
Closes: Saturday 7 April 2018

4.48 Psychosis

Despite the dark nature of its subject and the eventual fate of its troubled creator, it's a work that contains humour and warmth as well as tremendous emotional power, all of them underlined in Venables' original and hard-hitting operatic version.

Previews from: Monday 23 April 2018
Closes: Friday 4 May 2018

Clowns / New Creation

Shechter's blackly comic portrayal of a group of anarchic clowns. With its razor-sharp lighting and pulsating score, Shechter's work has the energy of a rock gig combined with beautiful, moving choreography.

Closes: Saturday 12 May 2018
