Organisation profile

      Since opening in 2009, the Friel Theatre and Centre for Theatre Research consolidates the reputation of Drama at Queen’s which was acknowledged by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise that rated the majority of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent and ranked our unit in the top ten.

      Research in Drama comprises critical and practice-based methods and whilst recent activities and outputs primarily relate to Irish theatre, dramaturgy, post-conflict performance and applied theatre, our cluster specialisms also include theatre history and historiography, practice-as-research, theatre and medical ethics, modern European, and American drama. A number of academic staff have extensive professional experience working in the theatre industry and our department has superb connections to all local theatre institutions, companies, archives and arts organizations.
