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.
