About this Event

Fishamble are proud to present Tiny Plays 24/7, a selection of tiny plays submitted from the #TinyPlayChallenge, which will be presented online for audiences to enjoy.

The show will include of pieces performed on the O’Reilly Theatre stage and filmed, and multimedia pieces created digitally.

During the past few months, Fishamble, and the Irish artistic community, has been working hard to keep imaginations lively, communities engaged, and most of all offer people the opportunity of communication through creative expression. Fishamble wanted people to keep their creativity flowing by challenging people in Ireland and around the world, to write 600 word Tiny Plays.

From March to April, Fishamble set this challenge for residents of Ireland and the Irish abroad, with a weekly prompts of COMMUNITY, NATURE, TRADE, and ESSENTIAL. Fishamble then opened this challenge out to the rest of the world in May, asking people to respond to the prompt of CHANGE. Fishamble was delighted to receive over 470 submissions in total for the #TinyPlayChallenge, and published a selection of the Tiny Plays at, in addition to sending a prize of Fishamble playscripts to the chosen writers.

As Ireland begins to ease out of its lockdown, and as Irish theatre begins to look towards a new future, Fishamble is proud to announce that it will be presenting a selection of submitted plays, on 24th July.
