We are delighted to announce renowned Theatre Director, Stewart Roche, as our new Performance Theatre Company tutor for Term 3 starting back tonight. This year, The Performance Theatre Company has undergone an exciting overhaul with 3 established theatre directors with contrasting backgrounds guiding ensemble through each term.

Stewart is Artisitic Director of  PurpleHeart Theatre Company whose recent productions include Curious Tales for Christmas by Stewart Roche (Theatre Upstairs (@ Lanigan’s Bar 2012), Hollywood Valhalla by Aidan Harney (Bewley’s Cafe Theatre 2012), Men of Tortuga by Jason Wells (Focus Theatre 2010), Helter Skelter/Union Square by Neil LaBute (Bewley’s Cafe Theatre 2009) and After Miss Julie by Patrick Marber (Smock Alley Theatre 2009). Purple Heart emphasis excellence in performance to realise a wholly striking theatrical event. Developing working relationships with other companies is part of that realisation. The company has revived its productions for touring through Ireland both North and South since its inception in 1999.
