Hinterland is a touring community theatre project based in and around County Tipperary. It was created by Robert Power, who is originally from Carrick-On-Suir and has worked in various mediums in the arts world, including theatre and music. It is made up of a healthy blend of experience and youth, both in terms of cast and production team. In the summer of 2022, Hinterland toured its first production, The Playboy of the Western World by John Millington Synge. Having received a wonderful reception from audiences in towns and villages around Tipperary, Kilkenny, Waterford and on Inis Meáin in the Aran Islands, Hinterland have been encouraged to remount the production in the new year and bring Synge’s masterpiece to the RTÉ All Ireland Drama Festival, 2023. They are delighted and excited to be performing at 8 different festivals taking place in Wexford, Waterford, Cork, Clare, Kildare and Tipperary and look forward to meeting many kindred spirits along the way!
