Tinderbox has launched its first ever crowdfunding initiative to help fund our brand new theatre production ‘Famla’ by John McCann and to support local work reach new audiences across Northern Ireland.

Please join us in bringing the best new writing to our stages, supporting Northern Irish talent and creating a literary legacy for the future.

FAMLA is a brand new piece of writing for the theatre by acclaimed writer John McCann. It’s dark, funny, heartbreaking and challenges the stories we tell ourselves to hide the truth of who we really are.

We are a new team here at Tinderbox, with an ambition to bring high quality professional new theatre to everyone, whether that be a rural community venue, an arts centre or theatre, or even your living room. FAMLA will deliver the same high quality production values whether it we perform in a professional theatre venue or a school hall. We are passionate about supporting the creativity of local people.

This Crowdfunder will allow us to take great strides to achieve all of this, and access to the arts will be less about how close you live to a theatre, and more about simply visiting your local community centre, college, or even inviting us to perform at your own private event.

We are also grateful for the support and funding that we receive from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Belfast City Council.
