They left a burning Troy to found Rome. In Virgil’s story, Aeneas and his followers endure an arduous war on an epic journey for the future glory of a great city. Collapsing Horse use this foundational myth of the Roman people to interrogate storytelling and its relationship to truth.

Dublin Theatre Festival is committed to supporting Irish artists in creating ambitious and high-quality new work. Our In Development programme offers theatre-makers a platform to stage their works-in-progress for Irish and international audiences and theatre presenters. Audiences will have an opportunity to see pieces at a critical phase in their development, while artists, writers and directors will use the space to try out new ideas.

Past In Development presentations have gone on to enjoy successful productions as part of Dublin Theatre Festival and have toured at home and abroad to acclaim.
