The Arts Council


Gúna Nua Theatre was founded in 1998. Since that time it has become one of Ireland's leading independent theatre companies, with a reputation for innovative, accessible, quality work. Gúna Nua has at its core the following principles: to create new work for the stage; to develop a working method which enables the full involvement of theatre practitioners from different disciplines at the earliest possible stage in the play-making process; to use this working method for the creation of new work, and to adapt this working method for the theatrical production of existing texts; to use modern theatre techniques to bring a vibrant, dynamic and, above all, entertaining form of storytelling to the stage; to achieve excellence in performance through intelligence, integrity and passion; to produce work which is contemporary in thinking and which reflects the concerns and interests of the times, in order to attract a new theatre-going audience.
