The ADGTF is proud to support both new works and present a range of free events. Continuing our long tradition of Festival Play Readings comes the following new piece…
‘The Rise and Fall’ by Stephen O’Rourke, Sunday @ 3:30pm, The Front Lounge
‘The Rise and Fall’ is set in modern day inner city Dublin. It follows
the life of the central character of Killian taking us on a journey
through his past and present. The play delves into the under belly of
modern day society. It examines the pressures to achieve and to conform
to social expectations in these changing times. It is dark, honest,
believable, humours and not to be missed!
The Front Lounge are proud sponsors of the theatre festival and are currently offering a special deal to Festival-goers.
Why not discuss some shows over wine at the Festival Club? Show your Festival ticket at the Front Lounge and get a bottle of wine for 18EUR, either before or after the show…
Offer runs for the duration of the Festival
Due to circumstances outside of our control this week’s performances of ‘Loupe’ have been cancelled. The company have experienced unexpected last-minute travel restrictions travelling from Zimbabwe which may be linked to the current ‘swine flu’ scare.
We would like to apologise sincerely for any inconvenience caused. All ticket holders will be individually notified as quickly as possible and refunds given.
No other shows are affected by this change. If you have any questions please contact our box office staff.

A Conversation with Terrence McNally hosted by Mark O’Halloran.
Tony Award winning playwright Terrence McNally will be in conversation with Irish award winning playwright Mark O’Halloran as part of the sixth Absolut Dublin Gay Theatre Festival.

Terrence McNally is one of the greatest living international gay playwrights and is a patron of the ADGTF – this is his first visit to the festival which runs in Dublin City Centre venues from May 4th to 17th.
These two playwrights will converse for an hour in the studio theatre at Outhouse – 105 Capel Street on Wednesday April 29th at 6.30pm. All are Welcome.
Seating is limited. To reserve a place email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2009 Programme was officially launched last night in the Gaiety Theatre as ABSOLUT were welcomed onboard as title sponsors.
