Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.


Asylum Productions


  • Description

    Asylum Productions is a collaborative affiliation of theatre artists dedicated to the development and presentation of new work: through both new writing and the development of new forms of theatre. Our work always has a social dimension: exploring the human experience in contemporary society through diverse forms of story-telling. Since our foundation in 1998, we have presented a number of critically acclaimed productions of new and contemporary works, touring nationally and internationally. Our flexible structure allows us to develop innovative work that is artist-led, creating an eclectic body of work ranging from the re-investigation of an absurdist classic (Bald Prima Donna), to cutting edge contemporary Irish writing (Enda Walsh, Peter Gowen), to developing new forms of theatre presentation: merging puppetry, physical & object theatre (Cleaner, Red Lola). Our work is production-driven: Asylum does not have an administrative infrastructure. Instead, we work from project to project, in partnership with existing arts and community organisations, venues and festivals; sharing resources, reducing our administrative costs and focusing our financial resources on creating quality theatre.
