About the company…
Formed in 2015, Polliwog Theatre Collective is a team of multidisciplinary artists and producers. Their first production ‘I Am Bear’ was performed at the Collaborations festival in Smock Alley. They then went on to perform at the Scene + Heard Festival with ‘Turning Point’ by Conor O’Rourke, ‘Splash’ by Joe Murphy and ‘Chromatics’ and ‘Tir na nÓg’ by Shauna Carrick.
Polliwog Theatre have had great success with Shauna Carrick’s mighty musical ‘Chromatics’. The show was showcased in London’s The Other Palace as part of ‘Musical Bites’. Director Andrew Keates then developed the show in Dublin for a production at the Mill Theatre.
The company’s latest project is a bi-monthly scratch night in Dublin called ‘Scratch Me If You Can’. This night is aimed at allowing artists to try their hand at any new work they have been working on in a safe and free environment.
Now with the development of ‘The Last Corner Shop on Misery Hill’, the entire team is ready to present the audience with non-stop belly laughter from start to finish.
