Smock Alley

Smock Alley Theatre was created to restore, reinstate and maintain the theatre at Exchange Street Dublin and to make the same available for the performance and instruction of theatre, drama, music, dance and film. Our policy, as agreed by the board, is to produce high quality, relevant, engaging and accessible theatre.Since opening in 2012, Smock Alley’s two theatres and unique event space have helped establish the venue as a vital resource within the ecology of Irish theatre. We partner with many arts and cultural festivals to welcome audiences, engage with artists and create exciting cultural events. From Dublin Theatre Festival to First Fortnight and from IMRAM to the Irish literature Festival these partnerships are a vital part of our annual programme.
Through the Scene and Heard festival and a supportive rental environment Smock Alley has become a vital first support for many emerging artists and theatre makers. Where possible we offer box-office splits or preferential rates, particularly for our Boy’s School space to support and encourage new and experimental work. We have created formal relationships with artists through our residency programme to directly support the development of their work through waived rental fees and creative support.Smock Alley has presented a programme of its’ own work between 2012 and 2018. From the 2020 season the company will embark on a policy of co-production and will engage with the best independent theatre companies to create work of the highest quality for the Smock Alley stage.
