Barnstorm Theatre Company, founded in 1991, is based in Kilkenny.  From September 9th 2011 we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary!

The Company

Barnstorm endeavours to establish theatre practice which engages the wider community, with a positive bias towards access and provision for sections of the community not traditionally theatre-going, e.g. children, young people and local communities.

Who’s got 20p for the phone? This was a recurring question in the early days of Barnstorm’s development when we needed to make a call from the local telephone box!
