Run of the Mill Theatre

Independent Artist

Run of the Mill Theatre is an inclusive artistic collective based in North Kildare which is coordinated by freelance theatre artist and facilitator Aisling Byrne.

Run of the Mill makes award-winning, inclusive art and provides outreach, training and artistic opportunities for intellectually disabled artists and participants.

We are committed to creating a platform for the stories, artistic expressions and talents of intellectually disabled people in the arts in Ireland. We strive to make work of high artistic quality that is entertaining, ambitious, impactful and visible on our stages and our screens.

At Run of the Mill, we believe that the arts are a powerful tool for social change – through amplifying unheard voices and the sharing of new perspectives. We champion the rights of our participants and artists to be involved meaningfully in the arts and we advocate for increased accessibility for learning disabled artists across the sector. We work towards making the landscape of arts practice in Ireland a more inclusive one.






People are waking up to the idea that diversity makes for really interesting art. – TheJournal.ie (Run of the Mill at Culture Night 2020)



Run of the Mill recognises that people with disabilities have an incredibly valuable contribution to make to the cultural and artistic life of their community and the wider country. They champion the rights of their participants to be involved in theatre arts, and lobby for increased access for people with disabilities to the arts in all capacities as audience members, participants, artists and paid professionals. The company works towards making the landscape of arts practice in Ireland a more inclusive one.
