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 in houses across Dublin 15. A selection of these plays will be presented in Draíocht as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.
Each night a programme of 6 newly commissioned plays.
Each night a different programme of work.
Each night a unique theatrical event.

Theatre Artists include: Robbie Blake, Shaun Dunne, Sorcha Fox, Dylan Coburn Gray, Annabelle Comyn, Deirdre Kinahan, Gavin Kostick, Fiona McGeown, Paul Mercier, Elaine Murphy, Felicia Olusanya, Little John Nee, Natalya O’Flaherty, Jody O’Neill, Neil Watkins.
