Welcome to the Dublin Shakespeare Society’s website in this our 111th year. In this year we continue to mark works of the great man himself and we have as usual, an exciting and varied programme of events planned.
Shakes Autumn Update
Sept 14th Table Quiz
Dublin Shakespeare held a very successful Table Quiz on Friday 14th September in Teachers Club, see you there. It was very well attended with lots of fun as we went through the rounds – how many planets was that?? A great evening with lots of time for members – and new faces – to have a chat.
Sept 29th – The Beguiled
As part of our Love & Lust series of rehearsed reading we presented the ‘The Beguiled’ adapted by Ben Shockley from the novel by Thomas Cullinan, on Saturday 29th September. Directed by Hilary Boyle and produced by Nessa Power, cast included Paul Mc Corry, Nessa Power, Ann Hogan, Julianna Gonzales, Roisin Mee, Noelle Timmons, Aisling O Leary, Abril Keinrath, Maria Fernanda, Aidan Judd, and Alan O Brien
This classic Southern gothic story details a wounded Yankee soldier in the American civil war, who takes refuge in a ladies boarding school. The girls immediately fall under the spell of this charming stranger. But soon his presence unleashes something dark and dangerous in all of them. Lots of female parts up for grabs, one major male part and a couple of smaller roles.
