Nora, by Belinda McKeon in collaboration with Annie Ryan, a new play after Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, makes its world premiere as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.

This house keeps safe a marriage, a partnership, a life of success and ease, a priceless collection and a daughter who has lacked for nothing; things seem perfect as a power couple prepares for a glitzy party among the art-world elite.

But when the secret upon which this life is built threatens to push through the polished surface, questions about what is real and what is not can no longer be ignored.

Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2017

Inner City Helping Homeless collected over 7,500 shoeboxes during their Dublin Fill a Luas appeal last Christmas. We want this year to be even bigger and we need your help. Christmas is fast approaching, and while the festive season is a time of celebration for most of us, it can also be a tough time for many people, not least the homeless community.
