Described by The Sunday Business Post as ‘a timely and intelligent look at love’, In On It also raised over € 1000 for the Marriage Equality campaign. In 2016 we staged Remember Me, by the highly acclaimed French-Québecois writer, Michel Tremblay. The play ran as part of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival in May 2016 and the Creative Connexions festival in Sitges, Barcelona in October 2016. "Men At Play", written and directed by Brian Burns, won the Best Theatre Production Award at the Galway Fringe Festival 2018 and features actors Kieran McBride and Ruairi Lenaghan. It tours Dublin and Galway in November 2018.

To show the human condition in all its shades through the physicality of the human body, its grit, edge, truth, honesty, beauty. To have an energetic exchange with an audience. To allow the audience space to feel, think, be. Sweaty, raw, hungry, percussive, pulsating work. Connecting the inside with the outside.
