2015 – 2016 Season

This is a landmark year for Corrib – our first full season. Our mission is to engage, inspire, entertain, and challenge, and our three full productions for 2015/16 continue our focus on fresh and surprising writing which enlarges our understanding of the human condition.

Our mission is also to focus on lesser known voices. Four of the five plays this year are by female writers and feature strong roles for women of all ages. In our reading series, works by Irish-Indian and Irish-Croatian playwrights reflect the changing face of Ireland.
