Bottom Dog Theatre Company


  • Description

    Bottom Dog Theatre is one of Limerick’s leading independent theatre companies with an established reputation nationally and now internationally.

    Founded in late 2008 with a professional ethos and the vision of a full time locally based theatre ensemble, our current company includes Mike Burke, Myles Breen, John Murphy and Liam O’Brien.

    The company’s approach is very much rooted in established ensemble practice with all new works to date having been produced through collaboration between our writers, directors and cast.

    Our mission is to keep the professional practice of theatre alive in Limerick.

    We do this by empowering theatre artists to base themselves in their native city working collaboratively and creatively, while at all times prioritising the creation of challenging productions that offer direct employment and encourage their commitment to a career in the theatre.

    The company has been nominated for several awards nationally including 3 Irish Times Theatre Awards, and won Best Actor at Origin's 1st Irish Theatre Festival in New York for our debut in 2015.
