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 Winter Update

Twelfth Night – Saturday January 5th

It was time to shake off the “back to work” blues and polish our party pieces, The Shakes Twelfth Night Party was held on Saturday January 5th in Room 4 from 8.30 pm in the Teachers Club.

It was a fantastic evening with poetry, song, recitation and music and “went on until the wee hours”!

Spring Update

Voice Course – March 2nd and 3rd
Dublin Shakespeare had a unique opportunity to run a weekend Shakespeare Voice Workshop on
Saturday March 2nd and Sunday March 3rd  presented by Kevin Crawford. (founding
member of the Roy Hart Theatre company, whose ground-breaking influence on contemporary
Voice-work for theatre is internationally recognized.
This was well attended and enjoyed by all.
