Production Support

Rough Magic Production Support offers practical assistance to emerging companies and artists in the realisation of specific projects.  We offer a range of support in a variety of areas, including financial and accounting services; marketing and PR advice; production, contractual and touring support; and artistic and dramaturgical mentoring from Rough Magic’s Artistic Director, Dramaturg and Associate Directors.  These services are offered alongside resource-sharing initiatives such as free rehearsal space and office and administration facilities.


Since 2009, Rough Magic Production Support has assisted over twenty projects, including the work of ANU Productions, Bright Light Productions, Denis Clohessy, Collapsing Horse Theatre Company, Shaun Dunne & Talking Shop Ensemble, Christine Dwyer Hickey, Making Strange Theatre Company, Zoe Ni Riordain, Pageant Wagon, Playgroup, Aoife Spillane-Hinks, TheEmergencyRoom, Then This Theatre, Dylan Tighe, Underscore_Productions and Willfredd Theatre.


Artists and companies currently on the programme include Sean Dunne & Talking Shop Ensemble, Christine Dwyer Hickey, Annie Gill, Kate Heffernan and Sarah Baxter, Amy O'Dwyer, TheEmergencyRoom and Willfredd Theatre.


The mentoring support provided through Rough Magic Production Support is a huge commitment on the behalf of the company, but one which we feel is of mutual value and benefit to both ourselves and the artists we work with.
