The 16th International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival is running this year from May 6-19th 2019, with productions
from Ireland, UK, USA, Canada, South Africa and Australia to perform over the two
weeks long event in May.
“New writing continues to dominate the selection process which also included
visiting 50 productions at the Edinburgh Fringe. I am delighted that South Africa
and Australian LGBT theatre return with new companies this year and acknowledge
the great efforts these companies make to showcase their work at the world’s
biggest Gay Theatre event in Dublin”, said artistic director, Brian Merriman.
“We are pleased that new Irish companies are embracing this genre with
challenging and important LGBT stories for the stage. This opportunity to share
stages and network internationally within this theatrical genre is hugely important
for all writers and artists and has sustained us for our 16th year”, he added.
