International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival
1st - 14th May 2017
Contemporary stories of LGBT life will be celebrated on Dublin City centre stages for two weeks opening May bank holiday. Reaching its 4000th performance this year, plays covering a range of topical issues; from being a gay Traveller boxing champion, to lesbian gangsters in East end London, and Mormon missionaries, are packed into a most innovative programme of theatre, carefully curated from over 100 submissions from every corner of the globe.
International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival is an annual event celebrating positive LGBT identity, founded in 2004 with the aim to create new opportunities for visibility and affirmation of emerging LGBT artists and theatrical works. Now in its 14th year, the festival has grown to become the largest event of its type in the world.
With an emphasis on promoting recent works with a broadly gay theme or relevance, the festival endeavours to present an exciting and diverse range of Irish & International productions that welcome audiences of all ages and sexual identities.
