RSVP; theatre, film, events, workshops.

We create art, nurture artists, and envelop & develop community.

RSVP is very proud to call itself a Cork company and represents that pride in its name. 

The name Red Sandstone Varied Productions is based on several factors:

We believe that all experiences in life should be remembered for the lessons learned, 

but we need to let go of anger, just as writing in the sand is blown away by the sun. 

Let's write our positive actions in stone. 

Memories comfort us in times of grief, and honour our history, but positive actions bring us joy. 

Red is the colour associated with the Rebel County; 

Sandstone is the bedrock of Cork and 

Varied are the fruits of our creativity, and our


The central philosophy of this theatrical company is that we are all connected. Our practise is to treat each event as a holistic experience where producers, performers and audience are of equal importance. 

We strive for excellence in art, and therefore the end result is an artistic product to be proud of, but the product is not the paramount objective, the means by which we achieve our art is of equal importance. Art comes in at the heart.                                                              

Theatre can open up minds of all ages, to the limitless possibilities in life, and we endeavour to reach out to as many lives as possible. We harness the power of performance to generate teamwork, encourage innovative ideas and open awareness of self and our environment. 

Performance is a function of our company's being, and there are no limits on the variety of our products. We provide professional theatrical productions and short films, including site specific, historical and community based performance, favouring original writing.

We can create theatre anywhere. You give us the idea, the building, or the field and we do the research and creative planning. Together we can present your project, your festival, your community, or your business in a new and innovative way.
