Sash 2020 1200 X 600


The festival of New Work showcases the best tasters of never-before-seen live art from the North, South, East and West of Ireland. We programme a variety of WILD + WONDERFUL performances within 60 minutes at very happy prices.  You can become part of the work, by giving your expectations and your review – by Secret Ballot, Video Booth or Tablet Tale.

This year is our BIGGEST + BOLDEST yet with 109 new works! To tantalise your theatrical taste buds we have food offerings, SMOCKtails, and even an extra day for you to splurge (thanks to the leap year for that one).

For ARTISTS + MAKERS we have created a new Support Series offering a unique opportunity to meet with programmers, producers, resource organisations and dramaturgs.

Between 12 – 29 FEB 2020, the beautifully restored 17th century playhouse, that is Smock Alley Theatre, comes alive with the most playful, inventive, absurd, amusing and heart wrenching performances from Ireland’s ESTABLISHED + RISING stars.
