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.

January 2018 kicked off to a great start with the final of our rehearsed readings Castlerackrent and She Stoops to Conquer to packed houses.

In February 24th we presented an Evening with Dylan, a celebration of over 50 years of music from Nobel Laureate Bob Dylan.

A number of our members travelled to Stratford on 16th/17th March to attend Macbeth and Duchess of Malfi.

The spring production, The Capulets & Monteagues was directed by Paul Maher. The production was presented from April 18th – April 21st  and played to full houses. Another resounding success.

Submissions have now been received for our 2018 /19 Rehearsed Readings under the theme of “Love & Lust”, and these will be presented throughout the year, commencing in May. The first performance – “The Weaver’s Grave”, directed by Breege Fahy – will take place on Saturday 26th May.

Our autumn production “The Duchess of Malfi” directed by Valerie Greene will be presented from Tuesday 30th to Saturday 3rd November 2018.  Check back soon for audition dates!
