About The Playhouse



The Award Winning The Playhouse is based in Artillery Street, Derry and was established by Pauline Ross in 1992 with a grant of just £300. Since then it has grown to become one of Ireland’s leading Award Winning multi-disciplinary Community Art Resource Centres based on a neutral site with the city centre. It is a self-help, grass roots, bottom-up community development project which is people centre with charitable status.

The Playhouse comprises of a 175 Seat Theatre, an extensive Education and Outreach Department, a Dance Studio, a gallery and is home to several cultural/art based groups and tenants. The Playhouse filled (and continues to fill) a large gap in the provision of the arts in the North West.  It also is one of only a handful of venues commissioning, producing and touring theatre in the island of Ireland.

Whatever your needs, The Playhouse can provide you with a professional, efficient service for your event. For more details, please contact us on 028 7126 8027 or email us on: info@derryplayhouse.co.uk
