The Everyman is for Everyone

Our mission is to produce the best in Irish and international performance for Cork and Irish audiences. We aim to be indispensable to all of the communities we serve: audiences, artists, employees and suppliers, while remaining rooted in, and inextricably linked to, Cork.

We work hard to support and enrich the cultural fabric of our country by delivering an ambitious programme in a beautiful venue that serves the audience of today and builds the audience of the future.

To be an internationally recognised centre of excellence for theatre in Ireland and a vibrant cultural centre for Cork.



We put the audience first. At the heart of all of our discussions about what we choose to produce or present, how we do that and why, are our audiences.

We host a diverse range of top-quality productions. 

We work with partners to produce exciting and innovative theatre and opera.

We empower and support the artistic community of Ireland by nurturing and supporting artists and new work and presenting shows which fuel the imagination of our community.

We achieve what we do with a hard-working team who operate in a positive, supportive environment and who care deeply about the organisation’s mission. We have a special relationship with the communities and audiences we serve, in Cork and Ireland.

We do all of this working as a non-profit organisation.

The Theatre

Our beautiful theatre is a 650-seat listed building and a jewel of late Victorian architecture, which celebrated its 123rd birthday in 2019. The building possesses a rich and fascinating history and the stunning auditorium is a favourite with audiences and performers alike for its intimacy and atmosphere.
