Welcome to our
Amateur theatre is popular in Ireland as nearly every parish or area has a hall or community centre to stage plays. It’s a social thing which brings a community together.
The Spuds and Sill group was born at an intimate meeting of the Swedish Irish Society in an Irish pub in Stockholm in the winter of 2009.
The name brings together Ireland and Sweden – potatis och sill (potatoes and pickled herring) is a common dish in Sweden and spuds is a word commonly used in Ireland instead of potatoes.
We have an active group of about 88 members and perform a full-length play every spring. Occasionally, we perform at other events in connection with Bloomsday, Halloween or Christmas in Collaboration with the Swedish Irish Society.
New members are always welcome, for roles either on or off-stage and we welcome all nationalities to perform with us!
Rehearsing has helped many a member survive the long Swedish winter!

Their first production hit the stage in May 2010, with two performances of A Wake in the West, a comedy set in the west of Ireland in the 1980s. It got a great reception from the Stockholm audience and encouraged the drama society to continue in its endeavor to perform Irish drama in Sweden.Slow Travel Stockholm
