Moira Hunt, Shane Morgan, RoughHouse Theatre

Roughhouse makes theatre that explores the absurdity and beauty of the world we live in and the people that inhabit it.


From developing links within the community to supporting new writers and building from scratch, Roughhouse has a nose for good stories and seeks out dynamic and playful people to tell them with.
