A Play For Ireland

The Lyric are delighted to have partnered with Fishamble to search for a play for Ireland as part of their 30th year in 2018.  Fishamble set out to find one, big, ambitious play, that bursts with humanity and tackles a subject about which the playwright feels passionate. Now halfway through the two-year process, which encouraged the citizens of Ireland, and non-Irish citizens living on the island of Ireland, to write plays, engaging people aged 18+, from all communities, throughout the country,  the result will be the production of a very special new play, which will tour the country in Autumn 2019.

Five brilliant writers were chosen to represent the Lyric Theatre in this search for a play.  Congratulations to Vittoria Cafolla, Seamus Collins, Clare McMahon, Shannon Yee, Michael Patrick and Oisin Kearney.
