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

John Osborne’s groundbreaking play, Look Back in Anger focuses on the life and marital struggles of Jimmy Porter, an intelligent, rebellious young man and his upper-middle class wife, Alison. Tackling themes of sex, class, religion, politics, the media, and the sense of a country stifled by an official establishment culture, Look Back in Anger is widely considered to have changed the course of English drama in the 1950’s. Award-winning director, Annabelle Comyn, takes a fresh look at this world-renowned, blistering play, at a time when class and gender politics are once again to the fore.

Smock Alley Theatre, Wednesday 14th February – Saturday 3rd March 2018 We believe that Art is supposed to REACH its audience. We believe that it is the prerogative of the work to sometimes not work. We also believe that the AUDIENCE should be instrumental to the development of ART. Is is for that reason that Scene + Heard was born. A festival of New Work across Music, Theatre, Comedy, Dance and Spoken Word genres. We asked the ARTIST to bring their most original, thought provoking, funny and heart wrenching ideas to our stages to inspire our AUDIENCES and to encourage them to give HONEST feedback on the work in development that they see.

These events aim to provide a forum for audiences and artists to respond to productions in the context of what is happening in the world today.

Kirwan’s credits include writing and performing the highly-successful play, Dublin Oldschool and the IFTA-winning short film Heartbreak (Warrior Films), originally part of THISISPOPBABY’s RIOT.
