‘ KEEPS YOU HOOKED UNTIL THE END ’ – The Scotsman
Written by Stewart Roche / Directed by Jed Murray / Performed by Edwin Mullane
Inspired by the world of Edgar Allen Poe, The Fetch Wilson is a wild and savage journey down the streets and back alleys of modern Dublin from an award-winning writer and ground-breaking young Irish theatre collective The Corps Ensemble. This thrilling new play brings you to places you shouldn’t go but want to – while asking one question: how well do you really know yourself?

‘A young, fearless, and energetic company.’
The Corps Ensemble was founded in 2015 by a small group of actors and theatre practitioners who wanted to push their artistic limits and create a tightly knit, uninhibited and impassioned ensemble to present vital and exhilarating work for the stage. We believe that theatre should be about taking risks, aesthetically and physically, about breaking down the barriers between audience and performer, and above all, communicating ideas and feelings led by great performances, great stories and great playwrights.
