Dublin’s Ambassador Theatre presents Dinosaurs Around the World from Saturday 16th December 2017 for a limited time only. Dinosaurs Around the World takes you back in time on a dinosaur adventure and a tour of an Earth very different from today – a time before the continents as we know them existed, when lush landscapes covered Africa and greenery was the norm in Antarctica! With advanced animatronics, a multi-layered narrative, fossils, authentic casts, cutting-edge research and immersive design elements you’ll experience the Age of Reptiles as it comes to life! Dinosaurs Around the World invites you to grab your prehistoric passport to Pangea and discover how plate tectonics, land bridges, and volcanic activity allowed dinosaurs to disperse to all corners of the globe, giving each of the seven continents its own unique selection of these giant reptiles. During their 172 million year reign, dinosaurs adapted into a variety of forms due to the conditions of the areas in which they lived.  The exhibition includes examples such as the mighty T. rex of North America, the swift Velociraptor of the Gobi Desert, the massive herbivore Amargasaurus form the tropical jungles of South America and ten others! In addition to advanced animatronics, […]

Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old, and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna – recently separated – never liked school, never liked teachers.  So are they going to trust this one? And should they? A parent-teacher meeting goes very, very wrong in CLASS – a new play about learning difficulties: in school, in life, wherever. CLASS was first produced in association with the Civic Theatre and the Dublin Theatre Festival. Iseult Golden and David Horan are independent theatre artists who have worked together on new adaptations and original work for over a decade. This is their seventh collaboration.

Performance times: Tuesday – Saturday Evening 7:30pm Thursday & Saturday Matinee 2:30pm

A key player in U.K. grime, Wiley is often referred to as the Godfather of the genre. His particular style ”Eski” or “Eskibeat” marked the move from UK Garage that once dominated the London Underground to a new, MC-led style that first dominated pirate radio and later took the UK by storm. Producer and MC Wiley came up as a member of Pay as U Go Cartel, and was later a founding member of Roll Deep Crew. Much of his most crucial early work as a producer came out as white-label vinyl releases and free downloads. His notoriety sprung from his underground activity, his sidewinder or early rinse sets with Slimzee, his lyrical clashes on air with other artists, his MC lucidity and his legendary output, there is no argument to the fact that he has been the longstanding figure-head of the Grime culture. Over the years his consistent work rate has grown him a huge and varied back catalogue, dabbling with releases on independent and major record labels alike and running a stylistic gauntlet from underground to pop. No matter what musical direction he’s travelled production-wise, Wiley is in his very essence, a living legend and an ongoing inspiration within the scene. His […]

The vicious, barbaric undercurrent in Shakespeare’s most fear-filled tragedy erupts in this kinetic, blood-thirsty production. Unrivalled on the battlefield, Macbeth is rewarded with rank and favour by a grateful king. But war has left scars. With each enemy Macbeth butchers to serve his own vaulting ambition, his lust for power takes a more menacing grip. Spectres slaughtered on the battlefield drip poison in his ear, and passions erupt as he ferociously seizes the throne. But, violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood quickly spirals out of control as Macbeth’s demons return to destroy him. Set in the 11th century and culminating in an epic battle filled with revenge, justice, and beheadings, Icarus blends traditional and physical theatre and brings vividly to life some of literature’s most vibrant language and characters.
