Welcome to Red Alchemy Theatre Company

Red Alchemy Theatre Company was formed in 2010 by Christine Scarry.  It is dedicated to exploring provocative and challenging works by contemporary writers and composers, with special interest in niche ensemble pieces designed to showcase contemporary theatre and music theatre talent.  The company is also committed to producing work that offers support and performance opportunities to the graduates of Ireland's theatre and music theatre programmes.

Through innovative interpretations and high calibre performances, we strive to achieve this aim, making live theatre engaging, emotionally powerful and accessible to all. 

Currently in pre-production for a National Tour of Vincent - A Play by Leonard Nimoy.  Set against the visual backdrop of some of his greatest masterpieces, it provides a moving insight into the turbulent life and times of the misunderstood genius, Vincent van Gogh.  

Previous productions include a national tour of Listen To My Heart, An Evening with John Bucchino and Friends at The Cobalt Café, Dublin, A Café Cabaret at Bewley’s Café Theatre, a national tour of The Lonesome West, and Ritual For Dolls at The Mill Theatre, Dublin.

An unfunded, independent theatre company, Red Alchemy is based in the heart of Kilkenny City, although its production locations remain flexible.  Its existence relies solely on the patronage of audiences, benefactors and sponsorship.  Click here to find out how you or your business can become part of the Red Alchemy story through ambitious, imaginative and mutually beneficial relationships.

We aim to engage, inspire and delight ….


“From her brilliant work directing the highly successful “Annie” at the Olympia Theatre and Cork Opera House, to a run of six incredible sell-out Christmas pantomimes at the Olympia Theatre, she has been first-class.  A lady of extreme charm and a highly professional approach to everything she does.”
