WHO WE ARE
The Irish Theatre Group (ITG) is a not-for-profit organisation, here to share our love of theatre and our rich tradition of storytelling with the international community of Brussels. We started back in the early 1980s with a desire to stage some of the classics of Irish theatre and we haven’t stopped since. Fortunately for us, and we hope for you, the world of Irish theatre is vibrant and increasingly diverse and there is no end to the stories that need to be told and that are worth telling.
VIRTUAL FEATS 2021
Festival of European Anglophone Theatre Societies
While live in-person theatre has not been possible for a while, we have been experimenting with digital performances. So when it was announced that the annual theatre festival, FEATS, is going virtual for 2021, we were more than happy to join in. The ITG will present GSOH by Suzanne Walsh on Saturday 15 May. Watch it and many other plays during virtual FEATS, broadcast online on 14-15-16 May.

Are you a budding actor, a seasoned playwright, or a lighting wizard? Or are you interested in learning a new skill? At the ITG we are always looking for new talent and we welcome people of all nationalities and abilities. So get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.

Our home in Brussels
In 1994, the Irish Theatre Group, the American Theatre Company and the English Comedy Club purchased a complex now known as The Warehouse at Rue Waelhem in Schaerbeek. Managed by the three groups it features a 65-seat studio theatre, rehearsal rooms and workshop and is the centre for amateur English language theatre in Brussels.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Whether treading the boards or working backstage, for me, working on an ITG play is to learn the true meaning of teamwork. I personally love the creativity, escapism and fun of it all.

It was a real blessing to find the Irish Theatre Group when I first arrived in Brussels — a wonderful chance to explore a passion for theatre as part of a welcoming, friendly, and supportive community!
I've met some of my best friends in Brussels through the ITG and learned so much along the way. It's a great community to be part of whether you are acting, producing or working backstage.
