Decadent Theatre Company & Town Hall Theatre present


The Chief

by Jimmy Murphy

A new play that reveals the man behind the iconic historical figure of Michael Collins, exploring his intimate relationship with Kitty Kiernan, his dream for a united Ireland and his guilt at taking arms against former comrades. Marking the centenary of Michael Collins’s death in August 1922, this is a story that speaks directly to the Ireland of today.

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.
