This evenleth anniversary International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival takes place in venues across Dublin city centre and will feature a diverse programme of drama, musical theatre, music and comedy over two weeks.
Founded in 2004 to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth in Dublin of Oscar Wilde, the IDGTF has grown to become the largest of festival its kind in the world. It showcases works with a gay theme or playwright or addressing broader themes of masculinity, feminism, gender-identity and sexuality and presents these to a diverse, mainstream audience. Many works are Irish, European or world premieres and are performed by a wide variety of artists, in a diverse programme of over 30 plays carefully selected from over 100 submissions.
There will also be a range of free events including play-readings and a seminar on gay theatre as well as a nightly Festival Club.
