Explore the 2018 Dublin Theatre Festival programme – 18 days of live performance showcasing pioneering international productions, engaging and provocative Irish work, theatre for children, as well a series of critical talks, artist development programmes and industry events.
Established in 1957, Dublin Theatre Festival is Europe's longest running theatre festival, running for 3 weeks each autumn. We bring world-class theatre to Dublin, support artists in creating outstanding work and provide a platform to showcase the best of Irish theatre to the world.
At the heart of the festival is the city of Dublin – its people and its stories – and a commitment to contributing to the vibrant social and cultural life of our capital. Our mission is to present a programme of exceptional theatrical experiences that will appeal to the diverse communities that make up our city.
2017 marked our 60th anniversary, we have a rich history, with much to celebrate, but we are most excited about is what is yet to come. In the future we want to see more audiences participating in culture and more artists creating bold new work that challenges and inspires.
