Dublin Event Guide (2-05-16 – 8-05-16)

It can’t be May, sure it was snowing last week. Something must be wrong! Thankfully, there are lots of warm spaces inside to entertain you…

A couple of new plays, with Inhabitance in the Project and Olive Tree at the New Theatre, among others.  Anu’s Sunder is running until next Saturday and comes heavily recommended. The Gay Theatre Festival also runs from May 2nd to May 15th, with a variety of new work and is always worth supporting!

The Patrick Hennessy Exhibition at IMMA is worth checking out. The RHA Annual Exhibition is in full swing.

Gigs


RyleyWalker_PhotobyDusdinCondren_PressPhoto6

We had two great weeks of gigs, but that has come to a fairly obvious end this week, with the dullest week in recent times! Why can’t they be spaced evenly apart, and then everyone would be happy! If I were to pick one, it would be Ryley Walker in Whelans, and after that… some Irish bands with Declan O’Rourke, The Frank and Walters and Sample Answer.
