The Rabbit’s Riot Theatre Company is a production company based in the north-west of Ireland, that aims to create thought-provoking and emotive theatre, using both established and new writing.

Having just celebrated their first year anniversary, The Rabbit’s Riot has been bringing imaginative and topical theatre to audiences in Sligo, Leitrim and Dublin.

They have staged a variety of shows, including a colourful and vibrant rendition of the iconic Alice in Wonderland, mythological pop-up theatre, and a bold piece of verbatim theatre, focusing on the issue of cyber-bullying and revenge-porn.

Their next project is Where We Are Now, an LGBT theatre festival celebrating works written by and about those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning and everything in between!

Where We Are Now will take place 8th – 10th of June 2017, in venues across Sligo town, and in locations in Manorhamilton, Leitrim. It is a project that seeks to recognize and give an on-stage voice to members of rural communities in the Irish north-west. It is the first collaboration of its kind between writers from across the globe and Irish directors and actors within Sligo and Leitrim.

Tickets can be bought through The Rabbit’s Riot website:
