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.
