New Website

This month we're launching our brand new website, with it we're trying to bring together the different projects and strands of our work through a clean and simple design. You can find our new projects in the Productions tab.

See what projects we're working on in the In Development section.

And all of our work with writers has been brought together in one section called For Writers. Housing the script reading and submissions information, as well as the new writing projects we develop alongside our main work.

Please explore the site and let us know what you think of it, feel free to suggest improvements or report concerns, or simply tell us what you like about it. The site should give you a feel for what Accidental has gotten up to and even better, give you an idea for where the company is heading.

We've spent this year consolidating what Accidental is all about and what we want to experiment with in the future. From our early days our shows have been a collision of perspectives, art forms and unusual collaborations. Curious stories told through vibrant, ambitious performances, and it is these elements that continue to define our work. We've worked with playwrights, actors, filmmakers, DJs, choreographers, musicians, poets, painters, technicians and curators to craft plays our plays. With every production being a fresh invention, defined by the artists with whom we build it. Collective risk-taking has been at the heart our work - not always on purpose.

And moving into the future we see our work being an lynchpin between British narrative and European aesthetic styles of theatre. A place that Irish and Northern Irish theatre in particular can walk a tightrope between for me.

Next year will see one of our most ambitious productions to date with The Kitchen, the Bedroom and the Grave, the debut play by Donal O'Hagan and the beginning of a new period in our wee company's life.
