Dublin Gay Theatre Festival

The Dublin Gay Theatre Festival will be taking place from May 1st – May 14th.

The Festival was founded in 2004 to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Oscar Wilde, in his native city. With an emphasis on new or recent international and Irish works with a broadly gay theme or relevance, the Festival has grown to become the largest event of its type in the world.

The Festival creates new opportunities for visibility and affirmation for existing and emerging gay artists and theatrical works. The Festival’s criteria for inclusion into the programme are broadly interpreted to include works by gay writers, works that have a gay relevance or theme, or works that include either performance or another artistic contribution by gay people.

Participation and attendance is open to all who wish to witness and acknowledge the immense contribution of gay people to theatre in all its forms.


We start with a Free Seminar ‘Love in the Trenches‘, featuring a dramatized reading from World War I novel “Flower of Iowa” by author Lance Ringel.  Sunday April 30th @ 2:30pm,
