About Dublin Theatre Festival
Established in 1957, Dublin Theatre Festival is Europe’s longest running theatre festival, and runs 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. Dublin Theatre Festival 2017 will take place from September 28 – October 15.
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 marks 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.
