History

The theatre was a section of the malt house of Feehan’s Brewery, which closed in 1910 and was taken over by Smithwicks, who used it as a storehouse for beer until the 1940s. Carrick-on-Suir Drama Group bought the building in the late 1970s and with much work and dedication converted the old store into the present day theatre. Brewery Lane Theatre first opened its doors to the public in 1980 with a production of “The Plough and The Stars” by Sean O’ Casey. Since then the group have staged many productions and the theatre is frequently used by visiting performers and for gallery exhibitions.
