A theatre company based in Belfast, Accidental work with playwrights, actors, filmmakers, DJs, choreographers, musicians, poets, painters, technicians and curators to craft plays for Ireland and the world stage. Every production is a fresh invention and each play’s architecture is defined by the artists with whom it is built.

Most importantly someone who will embrace Accidental’s contemporary ambition to walk the tightrope between the unexpected and the impossible.

The new board members will be required to attend at least four, two hour board meetings per year, held in Belfast city centre, and to act as an ambassador and champion for the company by supporting Accidental events and initiatives.
