Welcome to the Dublin Shakespeare Society’s new website in this our 109th year. This year also marks the 400th anniversary of the great man himself and we have as usual, an exciting and varied programme of events planned.

There are already many highlights for 2016 with more planned for the closing of the year:

April 5th 2016
A major show in collaboration with the RDS entitled ‘Shakespeare 400: A Masque for Minerva’

The show was loosely based on the Elizabethan Masque form which combines music, drama and dance and will contain scenes from Shakespeare’s plays, some sonnets and songs. The connection with Minerva, Roman goddess of Wisdom, the Arts, War, and Trade is that she is depicted on the logo of the RDS, so the pieces performed will reflect those themes in the works of Shakespeare. The event was scheduled for 5th of April in the Concert Hall of the RDS for one night only and was a sell out success!
