Run of the Mill Theatre was founded in 2014 by theatre artist and teacher Aisling Byrne after six years working with artists and arts participants with intellectual disabilities across St. John of Gods Community Services (Liffey Region). Run of the Mill strives to provide opportunities for people with extra support needs to engage with the theatre arts as makers, artists and participants.
We make theatre, we provide education and training, run workshops and events, support collaborations and strive for greater visibility in the wider community for artists with intellectual disabilities.
