Why support Rough Magic? Where will your money go?

Rough Magic reminds Irish audiences what the live stage experience can be – a voyage into the unexpected, a revelation, an unforgettable night at the theatre. We want our patrons to join us in this adventure.

Like all in Irish theatre, Rough Magic continues to operate in a challenging and increasingly competitive funding environment. We need your support to continue the work we do: the iconic productions, the investment in new work, the discovery of new talent – you are an essential element of this story. And not only for the money you donate, which makes such a crucial difference, but as advocates for a company of which you can be justly proud, and which offers in its nature and practice, a progressive vision for society as a whole. Come with us.

As the company continues to broaden its creative boundaries, making a donation today will allow us to continue to:

  • Maintain our independent voice
  • Produce relevant and original Irish and international theatre
  • Tour, both nationally and internationally
  • Develop and support the next generation of theatre-makers through our COMPASS programme
  • Provide leadership in the cultural space
  • Put the artist at the centre of our production and development strategies
  • Enable the work of many independent artists and emerging companies
  • form supportive partnerships with organisations and individuals who share our sense of the value of art in general, and theatre in particular, in offering a new vision for the nation.
