Welcome to the Dublin Shakespeare Society’s website in 2022 our 115th year.

After 2+ years of enforced absence from face-to -face rehearsal and performance, the Artistic Committee believes it’s the ideal opportunity for our members to re-engage creatively with both the form and content of our theatre.

In 2022, we want our members to breathe new life into our output, capturing and expressing the long overdue explosion of our pent up creative impulses – to  Shake it Up!

There is a final project which is to be performed during October:

Finding Violet

The Irish Civil War was an horrific tragedy where former comrades turned on each other in brutal fashion. This new play The Best Man explores a few relationships central to the events of a century ago. These events have shaped Irish political divisions ever since. The play tells the story of Kevin O’Higgins, his new wife Birdie, his best man Rory 0’Connor and Kevin’s passionate affair with Lady Lavery. The show is presented by Tobar Na Run Theatre Company and stars Niamh Large, Alan O'Brien, Elaine O’Dea and Kevin Brennan under the expert direction of Glenn Gannon. The play opens for a two week run on Monday 28 November at The Teachers’ Club, Parnell Square at 8pm. Tickets cost €15 cash and please book early from Frank at 0858018174.
