Theatre Upstairs - Sending it out in style

One of the best little theatres in Dublin is just about to have a make over! For the last couple of years, Theatre Upstairs has done its best to promote new writing and talent in Ireland, and now they’ve decided to renovate their space. In order to fund this renovation, they are having a special night on June 29th to fund raise. It’ll be a fun night of performance and music and it is not to be missed. Tickets are only €10.

You can find all the details here.

Theatre Upstairs… sending it out in style!!

Theatre Upstairs presents a night of entertainment and extravagance to celebrate our second birthday and bid a fond farewell to the space, as it exists today…

The night follows our recent announcement that after two years, 50 productions, 40 of which were the world premieres of new plays and many of which were found in our Readers Group, who have staged over 45 table reads of new plays for writers… Theatre Upstairs is closing for two weeks this July, during which time a complete renovation of the space will take place.

In order to raise funds and celebrate these new developments, we are throwing a farewell party in the theatre on Sunday, June 29th to celebrate all that has taken place within the walls of Theatre Upstairs since we relocated in July 2012. Many of the talents who have graced the stage of Theatre Upstairs will perform specially devised pieces, including Peter Gaynor, Amilia Stewart, Aonghus Óg McAnally, Stephen Jones and many, many more, with your hosts for the evening, Karl Shiels and Katie McCann keeping you entertained between performances.

As we will be relaunching the theatre on July 15th with an original musical, A PICTURE OF US: A (sort of) MUSICAL, we have a special treat in the form of the writers and composers, Laurence Falconer and Kate Gilmore who will preview some of their own original material as well as supporting other acts on the night and Karl Shiels will keep you all entertained with some vinyl spinning before the live show kicks off later in the evening.

DATE: Sunday, June 29th

@ 7:30PM / DOORS
@ 7:30PM – 9:30PM / Vinyl Session with Karl Shiels
@ 9:30PM – 11:30PM / Live Show
