Arclight Theatre Company

“Do human beings ever realize life while they live it – every, every minute?”
No curtain. No scenery.

Arguably the most famous American play ever written. Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-winning drama set in Grover’s Corners remains as poignant and relevant today as it was in 1938 – a timeless story about living, love and loss and appreciating life and its quiet moments to their fullest.

Founded in 1992, Arclight have produced more than 60 plays in Ireland and have also performed internationally. This is their third time performing in Smock Alley after previously being here in 2013 and 2016 with their acclaimed productions of Macbeth and As You Like It.
