10 days in Dublin started yesterday. There will be over 200 performance happening all over the city between now and July 14, including theatre, comedy, music, film and visual art. All or almost all tickets are under €20, there are loads of shows for €5 or €6 and a few free events as well. Have a look at the programmme online or pick one up from their box office on Wellington Quay, just between the Clarence Hotel and The Workman’s Club.
And a special mention to Just Us Four, partly because I have a friend in the cast and partly because after reading Stella Duffy’s brilliant, angry and inspiring blog last week, it feels important to support theatre that puts women on the stage and tells women’s stories. They does both – female playwright and two female cast members tell a story about female friendship.
There are lots of female-led pieces across the 10 Days in Dublin programme, I’m sure something else will. There’s lots of great work being made by men as well! Go out and see something! At the very least, it will get you out of the rain.
