Fifth Province Productions was set up to produce work that's engaging and inspiring but also of value and insight, making it available to people who might not otherwise have access to high calibre live performance, as well as to new audiences for the arts.

We develop and present theatre that adds to people's experience of themselves and their culture. Our work offers audiences of any background an opportunity to experience high quality work of Irish origin.

** Open digital access to our work **

During the challenging period of COVID-19 restrictions we made openly available the video recording of our popular and acclaimed signature work Journey to the Fifth Province.               We invite you to enjoy the show's uplifting and positive message.
