Speckintime produces new or rarely staged plays. The company specialises in collaborating with emerging Irish writers to develop new work that is informative and challenging.
The long-term aim is to help develop the careers of talented Irish artists and to broaden the popularity of theatre by creating engaging, cost effective work. Speckintime creates work within an altruistic ethos and endeavours to build a meaningful and enduring relationship with its audience.
The company has established rewarding relationships with writer Philip St John, writer/performer Sharon Mannion, theatre maker Melissa Nolan and sound designer/composer Carl Kennedy.
The company welcomes the opportunity to work with other like-minded artists and companies, as either a creative force and/or producer.
Speckintime invests time and resources in the development and production of new writing. The company has produced three original productions and will stage two more in 2017. Aside from this then are a number of other projects in different stages of development.
Speckintime also has a commitment to the rediscovery and production of rarely seen and often forgotten plays of artistic merit. The one-act plays Enemies and Here We Are, which were part of Speckintime's inaugural production The Art of Wedlock, are examples of this.
Radio, TV and Film
Speckintime is developing Deeds of Deceit to be performed as a radio play. The company has a long term objective to co-produce film screenplays.
