Each autumn Dublin Theatre Festival brings 20 days of the best Irish and international theatre in the world direct to the stages of our fair city. The 2015 dates will be 22th September to 11th October.
This year over 200 performances will take place across 22 different venues, showcasing some of the country’s most exciting artists as well as spectacular shows from overseas, from 24 September – 11 October. Just some of the highlights of the 2015 programme include a new production of Conor McPherson’s Dublin-based play, ‘The Night Alive’, at the Gaiety Theatre, with a star-studded cast featuring Line of Duty’s Adrian Dunbar and Love / Hate’s Laurence Kinlan and Ian Lloyd-Anderson.
