Decadent Theatre Company, in association with the National Opera House Wexford brings this classic and rarely staged Billy Roche play to life. On Such As We is a heartwarming Christmas play from the author of The Wexford Trilogy and Calvacaders which will preview 24 and 25 November, officially opening on the 27 November in Wexford for a strictly limited run of 8 performances only. 

Oweney’s barbershop and the rooms to let above it offer refuge to a host of lonely hearts: a recently laid off hotel night porter, an angry young artist, a troubled orphan girl, a wounded old widower, a likely bruiser and the beautiful Maeve. All of them in their own various ways fall under Oweney’s loving spell. The last professional production of this play was in 2001. 

The production has an award-winning creative team including Director Andrew Flynn, Set and Lighting Design by Ciaran Bagnall, Sound Design by Fiona Sheil and Costumes by Sara Ben Abdallah. Decadent Theatre Company has assembled a quality cast of some of Ireland's best acting talent including: Garrett Lombard, Maeve Fitzgerald, Daniel Reardon, Patrick Ryan, Ruairi Heading, Honi Cooke and Tadhg Snodgrass.


Since its establishment, Decadent has produced 24 National Tours. In 2014, the company was nominated for the Irish Times Theatre Awards Judges’ Special Award for their “enduring commitment to touring”. Decadent Theatre takes pride in their commitment to touring, striving to highlight the best of Ireland’s modern dramatic tradition for small town and urban audiences alike.
