Sugarglass are a Dublin/NYC based theatre company committed to the creation of new work, international collaboration and theatre that is visually striking. Not defined by one style, our productions challenge the form while maintaining respect for the fundamentals of good theatre: necessary stories, great performances and the unique magic of the live event.
Sugarglass was founded in 2012 and has five core members all of whom met at Trinity College Dublin. Dizzyingly ambitious… wonderfully inventive and richly immersive… Heavenly
The Irish Times We believe in making work of a large-scale that is a visible and audible part of the communities in which we perform; demanding more from what the theatre can be in our times. We have created eight productions in our short history, and have regularly toured internationally. Our work has been presented on the main stage of Project Arts Centre Dublin, The Connelly Theate in NYC and at the International Happy Days Festival, among others. We have been nominated for ‘Spirit of the Fringe’ at the Dublin Fringe Festival, called a national ‘cultural highlight’ by The Irish Times and been critically acclaimed in national and international media. Sugarglass are divinely intervening in the conventional theatre-going experience.
Musings in Intermissions Company members have been selected for numerous awards and honours including the Irish Times Theatre Awards, The Next Stage at the Dublin Theatre Festival and the Jennifer Johnstone and Elizabeth Tuckerman Scholarships. We are committed to collaboration with partners outside the theatre, such as Science Gallery Dublin. Sugarglass was privileged to work with the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and the Irish President in creating work for International Human Rights Day both in Ireland and at diplomatic missions abroad.
