The Corps Ensemble is a Dublin-based theatre production company rooted in concepts of play, connection, family, and craft. We are an ensemble dedicated to creative collaboration, bringing together Ireland's top actors, writers, directors, producers, designers, choreographers and more in the pursuit of creating challenging, evocative, and engaging theatre of the highest caliber.
WORKSHOPS & READINGS
