New Playwrights Showcase Premiere

The Lyric Theatre warmly invites you to two special double-bill performed readings showcasing four of the most exciting new voices in Irish theatre.  In Spring 2017 Andy Doherty, Erica Murray, Seamus Collins and Vittoria Cafolla were selected to take part in the Lyric’s inaugural New Playwrights Programme, which has supported them in the development of four new pieces of work for the stage.

The readings will be directed by renowned directors Des Kennedy (Once The Musical, Gulliver’s Travels and Associate Director of Harry Potter & The Cursed Child) and Emma Jordan (Artistic Director of Prime Cut Productions).

Come along, enjoy a drink, and support new Irish writing!
