  • Eugene McCabe’s King of the Castle which premiered at Dublin Theatre Festival in 1964 to acclaim and scandal is revived in a new version from Druid.
  • From Landmark Productions and Galway International Arts Festival, Woyzeck in Winter an electrifying fusion of two masterpieces – Büchner’s Woyzeck and Schubert’s Winterreise.
  • Stacey Gregg’s newest play, Josephine K and the Algorithms on the Abbey Theatre’s Peacock stage.
  • The Irish premiere of Nina Raine’s award-winning play Tribes at the Gate Theatre.
  • Fishamble: The New Play Company, and Sebastian Barry, reunite for the world premiere production of On Blueberry Hill at the Pavilion Theatre.
