HISTORY (IN DEVELOPMENT)

As part of a series of special events to accompany their 2012 performances Dublin Theatre Festival presents….

St. Michael’s Estate is a 14 acre site in Inchicore, in Dublin’s south inner city. For hundreds of years, it was a place where people lived. This is where our history was made. There’s nothing there now but poppies. HISTORY is a story about Ireland’s future.

HISTORY, a new project by THEATREclub, is a Public Art Commission from Dublin City Council to mark the regeneration of St. Michael’s Estate. THEATREclub are making a trilogy of work about the social history of Ireland: HEROIN (2010) and THE FAMILY (2012) are the first two parts, HISTORY will be the third and final part.
