The Arts Council Playography Na Gaeilge




  • Description


  • History

    Founded by Jimmy Fay in 1993, Bedrock used contemporary methods to make gripping and entertaining theatre that tackles fundamental questions at their most acute point of crisis, using contemporary methods.

    The company devised new work that crossed the boundaries of theatre, performance art, dance and video, presented challenging international drama by writers such as Bernard-Marie Koltès, Caryl Churchill, Sarah Kane and Peter Handke and produced new work by some of Ireland’s most imaginative dramatists, including Alex Johnston, Mark O’Rowe, Ken Harmon, Arthur Riordan and Des Bishop. In 1995, Bedrock initiated and administered the first Dublin Fringe Festival. Bedrock toured nationally and internationally.
