Founded in Kilkenny in 1991, Barnstorm Theatre Company creates and presents quality theatre for, and with children, young people and adults.

We engage the transformative potential of theatre for the benefit of our audiences and communities. 

We work with people who are committed to a vision that everyone has a right to a cultural identity.

People who want to put theatre, audiences and communities at the centre of conversations about the kind of world we want to live in.
