Fishamble: The New Play Company Supports

Training, Development & Mentoring Schemes: As part of its commitment to developing new work for the theatre, Fishamble regularly presents workshops, discussions and seminars, as well as in-house and public readings of new work. Over the past decade, Fishamble has provided dramaturgical, training and mentoring support to many playwrights and other theatre artists.

"In order to keep vibrant, theatre requires constant transfusions of new plays. This life-providing role is fulfilled enthusiastically and with wonderful results by Fishamble. Without them, Irish theatre would be anaemic."
- Brian Friel
