Nuns Island Theatre is a small intimate fully equipped 82 seat theatre situated in the heart of Galway City. The theatre is available for rental for a variety of functions from Theatre and Film , workshops and readings to meetings and weddings.
The theatre is a flexible space that can be utilised as a Blackbox space for all forms and styles of performance. It can also be utilised for workshops, readings and rehearsals, and can be flooded with natural light by removing the wall drapes and exposing the eight large windows.
The theatre has a sloped seating bank that when fully open holds 82 seats. The seating bank in itself is flexible and can be opened to house a smaller no of seats and give a larger performance area. It is possible to not use the seating bank and to stage work in a promenade, trust staging or in the round style. This will incur extra costs and must be agreed in advance as it will mean hiring in staging and seating.
The theatre has a fully equipped control room, toilets and showers and one dressing room. The theatre is wheelchair accessible.
