Associate Company

Formed in 2015, MALAPROP Theatre is an award-winning collective of seven theatre-makers. Their work is bold, playful, and genre-spanning. MALAPROP aims to challenge, delight, and speak to the world we live in (even when imagining different ones).

Work to date includes LOVE+ (2015), BlackCatfishMusketeer (2016), JERICHO (2017), Everything Not Saved (theatre show, 2017 and short film, 2018), GULP (video, 2020), and Before You Say Anything (2020).

The company has won the Spirit of Fringe Award (Dublin Fringe 2015), the Georganne Aldrich Heller Award (Dublin Fringe 2017), Melbourne Fringe Award 2018, and the Romilly Walton Masters Award 2018.

MALAPROP has performed their work in Ireland, the UK, France, China and Australia.

Since their first Fringe appearance just two years ago, the riveting company MALAPROP have been asking some of the most salient questions about this jittery world of ours while discovering engaging new ways to explore them. — Peter Crawley, The Irish Times

A company of real ambition. One which is using theatrical form to grapple with the complexities of a world where the ground is constantly shifting beneath our feet and where what we believe can be recalibrated not just on a daily basis but minute by minute. — Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

A company that will go far — The British Theatre Guide
