Find out about the theatre makers we are supporting with bursaries, commissions and other supports here.

At An Grianán Theatre we’ve always supported local artists. In pre-pandemic times our stage was always busy and behind the scenes, we were also busy offering time and support to local artists, with advice, networking opportunities, finance, technical and marketing support as well as production and touring work.

That work hasn’t stopped with the pandemic and in this new section on our site we highlight some of the ways in which we are helping local theatre makers.
