Fishamble values its many partnerships with venues throughout Ireland very highly. It has always enjoyed collaborating with Belltable and Lime Tree Theatre in Limerick, touring productions there on a regular basis and, in 2014, working closely together to premiere Fishamble’s Underneath by Pat Kinevane as part of Limerick City of Culture.
I am delighted that Fishamble and Belltable will work together in a different way during 2016/17, when we present a year-long mentoring programme for playwrights and directors at Belltable. Fishamble has previously presented similar programmes in partnership with Riverbank Arts Centre, Draíocht, The Mill, the Pavilion and the Source Arts Centre, and is delighted to progress its relationship with Belltable in this way.
Applications from interested directors, playwrights and theatre artists are being accepted up to 1 July, and the programme begins in September. Further information is available here, and we look forward very much to working with artists in Belltable soon!
