The Irish Student Drama Association Festival is a week long theatre festival hosted annually by drama societies of third level institutions in Ireland. It involves students from colleges all over Ireland coming together to put on productions in front of a panel of judges from the Irish theatre scene.
The festival also includes a fringe festival and daily events and workshops. At the end of the week there is an awards ceremony and celebration, where the best in each category is announced by the judges. This year ISDA Festival is being hosted by UCC Dramat in March 2013.
