Where We Are Now – LGBT Theatre Festival in Ireland’s North-West

Where We Are Now LGBT+ Theatre Festival Sligo & Leitrim, 2nd to 6th May 2018

Treasa Nealon is co-producer of the Where We Are Now Theatre Festival, the North-West of Ireland’s first LGBT Theatre Festival. Now in its second year, the festival will take place on 2-6 May in Leitrim & Sligo.

Treasa tells us:

“We have the visually stunning ‘Jungle Door’ by the award-winning Eva’s Echo Theatre Company, the intimate ‘Precisionism’ by award winning London based Old Sole Theatre Company, Macbeth set in the neon party scene of 1996 New York and a series of fantastic short plays by The Theatre Room Galway. We also have a free showing of Tuesdays at Tescos, performed by Belfast based TheatreofPluck”.

Killian Glynn, Artistic Director, is delighted with the fact that this year the festival is going to be bigger and better:

“It is stupefying to be writing this foreword in the knowledge that this time last year we were in the midst of preparing for the first annual queer theatre festival in the north-west of Ireland. As a company and as artists, we are so proud to be able to work on a project that celebrates the diversity and cultural richness of our community and get to put on a magnificent show while doing it. This year, with lots of hard work, passion and dedication, we are back with a festival that is bigger, better and brighter than ever before!

You will get to see incredible productions from London and Galway as shows that have been home-grown here in Sligo and Leitrim. There’s something for absolutely everybody, so there’s nothing left to do but sit back, relax and enjoy… Where We Are Now 2018!”
