10 Days in Dublin | Theatre Picks
Kicking off today, 10 Days in Dublin is back again this year after rocking the capital last year with a ten day line-up of music, theatre, comedy and more. This year however, the “multidisciplinary, open-format, arts festival” (i.e. anything goes) is expanding to accommodate over 96 acts across more than 26 venues, and with programme entry based on submission, the openness of the festival not only guarantees something for everyone, but also that you’re bound to find something you’ve never seen before or never thought you would.
Some of the highlights include Conor O'Toole, Diet of Worms, the Trinity College Orchestra, Cloud Castle Lake, a special night of Milk and Cookies stories, and rising star Shane Gillen's new magic show 'Mind Heist, but here’s our picks for theatre during the festival.
July 8th to 11th at 6pm
The New Theatre
Running Time 75mins
Playing on the stereotypes of female friendships, this show has it all. Heart, aggression and wit all come to play in an exploration of teenage sexuality and relationships, where four girls reclaim the word slut. If you’re a fan of HBO’s Girls, or just want to see some great girl-on-girl theatre, this show is for you.
Heroin(e) for Breakfast
July 5th to the 12th at 8pm
Smock Alley Studio
Running Time 70 mins
Critically acclaimed from a run in the Edinburgh Fringe, this darkly funny and highly irreverent play mixes sharp dialogue with stand-up and physical comedy while discussing, amongst other things, the recession, Coldplay, sex and Marilyn Monroe. And with a cast of Dublin’s best and brightest young talent, this one’s not to be missed.
Playback As Soon As You Hear
July 9th at 8.30pm
Anseo, Camden St.
July 12th at 8pm
Running Time 90 mins
“Oh God, that reminds me of this one time I was at a party and I was really drunk and...” How many times have you heard/said that? Well Playback As Soon As You Hear wants you to say and hear it one last time. Turning your stories into theatre right before your eyes, this interactive-improv hybrid run by a collective of artists, actors and storytellers will literally be hot off the stage and is completely unpredictable. You could get a comedy, a tragedy, maybe even some musical theatre, but most of all your getting human stories.
