NUI Galway Drama staff at Dublin Theatre Festival

This year’s Dublin Theatre Festival begins at the end of September and brings a strong blend of national and international work.

Director in Residence Máiréad Ní Chróinín’s company Moonfish are presenting Redemption Falls at the Abbey Theatre. An adaptation of Joseph O’Connor’s novel, this show was a hit at this year’s Galway Arts Festival and looks likely to repeat that success in Dublin. https://dublintheatrefestival.ie/programme/event/redemption-falls

 On 2 October, Patrick Lonergan (Drama) and Barry Houlihan (Library) will join Melissa Sihra of Trinity College for a panel on Irish theatre history, held at the Royal Irish Academy.
