It’s another week of change, with the Fringe festival sadly departing for another year, but the Theatre Festival starts, so you’ve no chance of being bored. It’s also Arthurs day on Thursday (26-09-13), so a few good gigs on around Dublin for that one.
There’s also Oktoberfest at the IFSC, The Dublin Live Arts Festival and the final hours of the Ranelaigh Arts Festival. A lovely little film festival is taking place in Kilruddery this weekend also. The library in Kilruddery house will be converted into a cinema for one weekend only, and there will be a variety of movies, such as the thief of Bagdad and Miller’s Crossing.
It’s sad to see the Fringe Festival departing, as it was a lot of fun, weird and wild! We can’t complain though, as there’s still a lot of see. Also, Major Barbara and Streetcar have finished, after long runs, so it’ll look quite different below.
