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.
