Hidden within a bookshop in Temple Bar finding The New Theatre is a bit like finding buried treasure. Specialising in supporting new writing you are guaranteed to find something new, daring, different or inventive on stage.

We saw "The Last Green Bag," which is a diabolically clever spoof of film noir ... with a sharp twist that sneaks up on you just as you're laughing at the idiocy of it all. Come here if you're looking for playwrights with something to...More

I attended 'Save & Quit' at the weekend and both the play and theatre deserve a thumbs up. The theatre is small and intimate but did not feel at all cramped. The quirky bit is that you enter through a door in the back of...More

Fab cosy theatre. Enter via a book shop. I love the whole atmosphere & performance. When back in Dublin this will be on my list.

This is a relatively small theatre in the Temple Bar area of Dublin that tends to do non-mainstream plays/performances. The seating isn't particularly comfortable and food/drink facilities are limited.

Privileged to have seen Taboo there on a Friday night. I wanted to expose my teenage son to some Dublin theater, so we did a big performance at Bord Gais as well but this was, by far, my favorite venue. Small, intimate, but very professional...More

We saw "Taboo" here recently. The theatre is located at the back of a book shop, the space itself sits 66 people so it is quite small but this means you are never far away from the stage. An enjoyable experience.

Excellent small cosy venue. Helpful staff and the play we seen was excellent. Marty Massacar A bit hard to find as it at the back of a book store. Wine needs to improve.
