Dublin Theatre Festival Tour

Tuesday, October 8 – Monday, October 14, 2019

There are still a few spots open on the Dublin Theatre Festival tour! Join us on my favorite tour of all to see the best of Irish and International theater in the hip and historic city of Dublin, Ireland.

We will see six performances at the Festival, including shows at the historic Abbey, Gate and Lyric Theaters, as well as two more shows in other venues. We will talk with many guest artists led by at the one and only extraordinaire artistic guide, Michael Paller (former dramaturg at ACT).

From our quaint hotel located in the city center, we will explore Dublin with James Hickson on a guided walking tour, exploring Belfast on a day trip where we will tour the city and then see Playboy of the Western World at the Lyric Theatre, and of course, enjoy fine dining and shopping – all offered with a dash of wonderful Irish hospitality.

The Dublin Theatre Festival will announce their entire production schedule in a few weeks. Thanks to our terrific contact at the Abbey Theatre, James, I have received  advance notice of four of the shows that will be included on the tour. We will see:

The Beacon by Nancy Harris
Redemption Falls adapted from the novel by Joseph O’ Conner
Playboy of the Western World by John Millington Synge
Last Orders at the Dockside by Dermot Bolger

I am so thrilled to have both Michael and James accompanying us on the tour. Between the two of them, no question can possibly go unanswered! They really do know it all!

Sign up and be surprised by great theater in a great city. You, too, will fall in love with “everything Irish” as I did eight years ago on my first trip to the Dublin Theatre Festival.

See you soon on tour!
