Upcoming projects in 2015
Corcadorca’s groundbreaking production of The Merchant of Venice was staged in 2005. Ten years on Corcadorca have collaborated with UCC to bring to Cork some of the original cast and crew from the production who will take part in a round table discussion. This event will take place at UCC on July 18th, 2015. Attendance is free but capacity is limited.

The Merchant of Venice 2005 website is online from June 17th. You can also check back at this site for additional updates.This event has been funded by the UCC Duets Award.
This Autumn we will produce Gentrification, a short play by award-winning playwright and longtime Corcadorca collaborator Enda Walsh (Ballyturk, The Walworth Farce, Disco Pigs). It will be staged site specifically in Cork City in September.
Supporting new writing is something we have always been passionate about and this year we are delighted to be working on three new works by different writers. Each will be developed at the TDC with the support of Corcadorca.
Looking further into the future, we are also currently working on a new play by Pat McCabe (The Butcher Boy, Breakfast on Pluto, The Big Yum Yum) for 2016 to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Entitled Sacrifice at Easter, the production will take place at a site-specific location in Cork. It will be the second time that Corcadorca and Pat McCabe have worked together.
