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 are already many highlights for early 2017 with more planned for the second half of the year:

On January 14th Dermot Corrigan is reprising his sell out show ‘Jacques Brel - Fragments of a Flemish Soul’.

On January 28th Emily Maher presents the last in the current programme of rehearsed readings with her adaptation of the story ‘The Garden Party’ by Katherine Mansfield.

On March 31st and April 1st we will be reviving Marie Doyle’s adaptations of two short stories by John McGahern ‘A Slip Up’ and ‘All Sorts of Impossible Things’ in the Dock Theatre, Carrick on Shannon.

On Tuesday 13th to Saturday 17th June, Geraldine Maguire will present ‘By the Bog of Cats’ by Marina Carr.

A new programme of rehearsed readings on the theme ‘Comedies - Directors’s Choice’ is proposed and the Committee and Artistic Directorate will accept applications from members who wish to direct.
