The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin, supported by BNP Paribas, returns to the Abbey Theatre on Sunday 31st January for its 5th annual fundraiser in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre.

Since 2012, The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin has raised over €37,500 for Dublin Youth Theatre.

Run in partnership with the 24 Hour Play Company, New York, and presented at the Abbey Theatre, The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin is a one-night-only theatrical experience wherein six short plays are written, rehearsed, and presented within 24 hours.

It's the highlight of the Irish theatre calendar; a never-to-be-repeated, blink-and-you-miss-it, have-to-be-there event.

The creative team includes 6 playwrights, 6 directors, and over 25 of Ireland's top actors. Behind the scenes is a crack team of stage managers, designers, assistant directors, production assistants, and technicians.

Everyone involved lends their time and talent on a voluntary basis, with all profits going directly to Dublin Youth Theatre.

Join us for this very special night on Sunday, 31st January 2016.
