In Autumn 2011 Fishamble: The New Play Company, in partnership with The Irish Times, launched Tiny Plays for Ireland, commissioning short works by some of Ireland's best-loved writers and calling for submissions of tiny dramas from the public.
There was an overwhelming response, with over 1,700 submissions received, reflecting the imagination, creativity and psyche of the nation. The result was an evening of plays by Maeve Binchy, Dermot Bolger, Colum McCann, Rosaleen McDonagh, Sean McLoughlin, Ardal O'Hanlon, Tom Swift and Michael West, presented alongside a selection of those submitted by members of the public.
'Tiny Plays For Ireland' offer a vivid glimpse of contemporary Ireland, as seen through a host of perspectives.
