WRITING DUBLIN NOW (DISCUSSIONS)

A series of lively panel discussions programmed by Dylan Haskins onm themes and topics arising from this year’s Festival programme.

In recent years there has been a proliferation of new cultural, academic, business and political initiatives in Dublin, pointing the way to an alternative vision for our city. If we agree that a new Dublin is desirable, why have so many recent plays by Irish writers been concerned with histories of the city? Is it necessary to conclude certain histories before we can move forward? Or is the examination of these histories a more practical means of imagining a better future?

Panel includes Fintan O’ Toole (The Irish Times), Grace Dyas (THEATREclub) and more.

ALL PANEL DISCUSSIONS ARE FREE. TICKETS ON THE DOOR. PLEASE ARRIVE ON TIME.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
