About The 24 Hour Plays
The 24 Hour Plays originated in New York in the mid-90s and is now an annual gala benefit on Broadway, as well as at the Old Vic in London, with performances in Chicago, Athens and around the world. The first Irish incarnation of The 24 Hour Plays received its sold-out Irish premiere presentation in February 2012 at Project Arts Centre and went on to win a Special Recognition Award for Best Event at the Irish Fundraising Awards that year. In January 2013, the show moved to the Abbey Theatre where it played to a sold-out house. Now in its 5th year, The 24 Hour Plays has raised over €37,500 for Dublin Youth Theatre through ticket sales and donations.
The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin is presented under a license and with the participation of The 24 Hour Play Company, New York, NY and is produced by Eva Scanlan and Phillip McMahon as a fundraising event for Dublin Youth Theatre.
