Dublin Theatre Festival 2018 in Draíocht ... Home Theatre (Ireland) ... Our Place. Our Stories.

August 8, 2018



Home Theatre (Ireland) ... Our Place. Our Stories.
Dublin Theatre Festival 2018
90 Performances - 46 Theatre Artists - 30 New Plays - 30 Dublin 15 Homes

Snapshot. This is life in Dublin 15 but it could be where you’re from.

Join us for a feast of new writing by some of Ireland’s leading theatre makers. Plays inspired by conversations with people who live in Dublin 15. Children, young people, adults, people new to Ireland, people who have always been here. People with stories. Join us for a night of freshly minted theatre pieces inspired by people just like you.

Home Theatre (Ireland) pairs 30 Dublin 15 ‘hosts’, with 30 leading theatre makers. After spending time together, in the hosts’ homes, in their lives, each theatre maker writes a piece of theatre that will be performed in the host’s home. Home Theatre (Ireland) democratises the voices in Irish theatre. 

Home Theatre (Ireland) happens over two weeks and culminates on Saturday, October 6th, when 30 new plays will be performed 3 times in houses across Dublin 15. A selection of these plays will be presented in Draíocht as part of Dublin Theatre Festival nightly from 10-13 October.

Each night a programme of 6 newly commissioned plays.
Each night a different programme of work.
Each night a unique theatrical event.
