Welcome to the Dublin Shakespeare Society’s website in this our 110th year. In this year we continue to mark the 400th anniversary of the great man himself and we have as usual, an exciting and varied programme of events planned.

There were already many highlights for early 2017 and more continuing throughout the year.

A new programme of rehearsed readings on the theme ‘Comedies – Directors’ Choice’ has begun with a very successful evening of ‘Monday Night in a Country Town’ directed by the author Tim O’Brien and Jim Martini directed a fantastic evenings entertainment with ‘Entertaining Mr. Orton’ on June 24th.
More are to follow:
‘Comedy Mash Up’ is directed by Val Greene and you can see that on September 23rd. Follow that up with ‘God of Carnage’ directed by Mary Conlon and start off the New Year with the wonderful ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ directed by Emma Hurley.

Our Spring into Summer production had its run starting on Tuesday 13th through to Saturday 17th June, Geraldine Maguire directed  ‘By the Bog of Cats’ by Marina Carr.  Playing to full houses this was a tour de force setting the bar for the year ahead.

Major Autumn Production

The  Shakes Autumn production of    Antony and Cleopatra     
to be directed by James M. O’Connor will run from 13th November for one week.
Check back soon for more details.
