We bring world-class theatre to Dublin, support artists in creating outstanding work and provide a platform to showcase the best of Irish theatre to the world.
At the heart of the festival is the city of Dublin – its people and its stories – and a commitment to contributing to the vibrant social and cultural life of our capital. Our mission is to present a programme of exceptional theatrical experiences that will appeal to the diverse communities and visitors that make up our city.
We have a rich history, with much to celebrate, but we are most excited about is what is yet to come. In the future, we want to see more people participating in culture and more artists creating bold new work that challenges and inspires.
