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.

‘Comedy Mash Up’ was directed by Val Greene and performed on September 23rd.

The Shakes followed that up with ‘God of Carnage’ directed by Mary Conlon on October 21st.

The extra Rehearsed Reading added to the schedule: Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth, in a version adapted and directed by Róisín Mee, will be performed on January 20th 2018 and the New Year continues with the wonderful ‘She Stoops to Conquer’ directed by Emma Hurley on January 27th 2018.

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   was
directed by James M. O’Connor and played at Theatre@36.
