Dublin Theatre Festival is 60
60 years ago the very first Dublin Theatre Festival was staged, an event which saw the beginnings of a festival which would grow into one of the world’s greatest celebrations of theatre.
This September Dublin Theatre Festival will celebrate its 60th Anniversary. Six decades on and the festival has grown into an internationally renowned celebration of Irish and international theatre which sees audiences from both home and abroad gather in Dublin each autumn.
The 2017 Dublin Theatre Festival programme will be launched in full this July. As we look to the next generation of artists and makers, and to the future of Irish theatre, we are also using this opportunity to take a look back at some of the most exciting, engaging and innovative theatre companies, performances and events that make up our archive of almost 1,500 shows.
We are currently preparing to launch our 2017 festival programme. In the meantime watch this space to read more about the festival's history and follow the story of Dublin Theatre Festival
