Fifth Province Productions is a Community Interest Company - a non-profit organisation - working to provide benefit to new audiences for the arts. We produce work that's engaging and inspiring but also of value and insight, and make it available to people who might not otherwise have access to live performances of high calibre.
We develop and present theatre that adds to people's experience of themselves and their culture. Our work offers audiences of any background an opportunity to experience high quality work of Irish origin.
