Eden

by Eugene O'Brien

Eden is the powerful story of an ordinary relationship on an extraordinary weekend. Billy and Breda are approaching their 10th wedding anniversary. Breda is determined that this will be the weekend that saves their marriage. But Billy is more concerned with Imelda, the beautiful young woman he has his eye on. From the writer of hit RTÉ drama Pure Mule, Eden is a story of stale love and fresh lust

Blackbird

by David Harrower

A jagged description of an encounter between a man in his mid-50s and a woman in her late 20. It becomes apparent that they had a relationship when she was 12.  A dark play where questions far outnumber answers.

Coming in 2022

Hangmen

by Martin McDonagh

What's the second-best hangman in England to do on the day they've abolished hanging? Amongst his sycophantic regulars, dying to hear pub owner Harry's reaction to the news, a peculiar stranger lurks, with a very different motive for his visit. A cracking comic thriller, complete with petty, roundabout dialogue and a series of startling U-turns.

Decadent Theatre Company specialises in large scale theatre tours. It’s in our DNA to tour and we are as likely to be found in a Midlands town as in The Gaiety, Dublin or The Lyric, Belfast. Through our National Tours we present Ireland’s modern dramatic voice to audiences of all types. In 2014 we were nominated for the Irish Times Theatre Award’s Judges’ Special Award for our “enduring commitment to touring”.  We take pride in our difference to other Theatre Companies and how it expresses itself on stage, on tour and in the rehearsal room.
