Booking opens today for the 60th Anniversary Dublin Theatre Festival, which will run for a three week period this Autumn. Since its establishment in 1957, the festival has grown into one of Europe’s longest running theatre festivals.
The programme features over 350 performances, on 19 stages across the city between the 25th September & 15th October 2017. The festival will showcase pioneering international productions, engaging and provocative indigenous work, theatre for children, as well a series of critical talks, artist development programmes and industry events.
Sinead McHugh of the Dublin Theatre Festival stated that there is something for everyone during the festival, especially for those who have never attended a theatre performance previously.
“For 60 years we’ve been putting on festivals and they’ve been enjoyed by audiences across Dublin, so this is a very important anniversary programme for us,” she said.
“It’s a real celebration of all the theatre that’s some before, and a look to the future too.”
The ultimate aim of the festival is to see more audiences throughout Dublin and Ireland participating in culture and more artists creating bold new work that challenges and inspires.
