The Abbey Theatre invites citizens from all communities to submit an idea or project that they want to develop.

We will choose 5 of these projects and provide you with 5 days worth of space, technical assistance and €5,000 to explore this project.

Do you feel that your community is underrepresented on the Irish stage?
Do you think your voice has not been heard by national organisations?
Do you want to develop a new idea that will give voice to your community?
Do you have a story to tell?

The Abbey Theatre is committed to creating an environment that promotes equality and dignity.

We are dedicated to welcoming citizens from across our nation to experience theatre, to debate theatre, to make theatre.

Please note: these supports are to be used to develop your idea but we do not expect you to present a show at the end of the week.


How to apply 

Click here to apply via our Google Forms. This is a short form which asks three primary questions about your community, your project and how you would use your allocated €5,000.

Deadline: Friday 15 December

We will respond to all applicants by Friday 22 December.

5×5 will take place over the following five weeks:
15 – 19 January
