Companies

Devious Theatre were founded in Kilkenny in 2006. We perform different works in different spaces for different audiences using different methods. Our work hops genre but stays rooted in a style of comedy we have honed over the years. We don’t like labels. Thus, our artistic credo is mostly ADHD based and fairly guerrilla. To this end, our goal is to kidnap as many young people away from gigs and cinemas and pubs and drag them to the theatre. We have performed 24 productions to date, have won a PPI Award for Radio Drama and have had our work featured at Cork Midsummer Festival, Dublin Fringe Festival, Galway Theatre Festival, TEXT | Messages at Project Arts Centre, Abhainn Rí Festival, Quarter at TDC Cork, Collaborations Festival, Cavan Theatre Festival and The Theatre Machine Turns You On amongst others. We were the first theatre artists in residence in Kilkenny Arts Office with our In The Future When All’s Well residency in 2011 where we performed the informal trilogy of Scratcher, Shifting and Smitten over a 7-month period.

TOURING POLICY

We have been touring our work since 2009. Our main priority is to cultivate and serve young theatre audiences in the south east of the country but we have been very happy to travel as far and wide as we can.
