Current Projects


Scenes from the City

Funded by Belfast Harbour

Through this social history project, the Theatre is working in partnership with local community groups to create four new plays to reflect the history of areas across the city over the lifetime of the Grand Opera House, which will celebrate its 125 Anniversary in 2020.

These new plays will premier at Belfast Harbour and then move to The Baby Grand Studio at the Grand Opera House. This project will be delivered in partnership with c21 Theatre Company and local community groups – Donegall Pass Development Association, Belfast South Community Resource and Lower Shankill Community Development Association.


Scenes from the City

Seasons of Farm Safety

Funded by Arts & Business NI

Working in partnership with Dale Farm, a new piece of theatre will be commissioned for children aged 10-11 years of age highlighting the hazards around the farmyard and the importance of working safely. The play will tour 20 rural schools across Co. Antrim, and will be accompanied by a workshop through which the children will further explore the areas of danger, the risks involved, and how these can be avoided.

The project will culminate with the play being performed at The Balmoral Show, Northern Ireland’s largest agriculture show, in May 2018.

This project is being delivered in partnership with Pintsized Productions.
