Irish Elders Theatre

IEAN runs the innovative Irish Elders Theatre.

“This has been an incredibly uplifting project, with older people acting, reciting poetry, dancing, singing and performing in front of live audiences. Projects like Irish Elders Theatre are culturally enriching, stimulating and – critically – are challenging of sedate stereotypes of older people.”

Nora Mulready, Head of Culture

Our plays are performed by older Irish people, most of whom had no previous experience of acting before getting involved.
