About Us

Like oil lamps, we put them out the back — of our houses, of our minds.
Eavan Boland – The Emigrant Irish

Green Curtain theatre was set up in 2011 to produce new work for the Irish community in London. It provides opportunities for writers, actors and directors drawn from, but not  exclusively, the London Irish diaspora.

For centuries London has been home to a large Irish population. The Green Curtain Theatre company will work with members of this community to produce and perform plays which reflect our experience and history in London and England.
