The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin were first presented in Ireland in February 2012, at Project Arts Centre. The show moved to its new home at the Abbey Theatre, with sold-out performances in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. We are delighted and proud to present the 6th annual production The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre on Sunday, 29th January 2017.
Since its inaugural presentation, The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin has raised over €54,650 in ticket sales and donations, with all proceeds going directly to DYT. This year, we are again supported by BNP Paribas Real Estate as our primary sponsor.
Early Bird tickets are on sale from www.AbbeyTheatre.ie on Monday 5th December.
Run in partnership with the 24 Hour Play Company, New York, and presented at the Abbey Theatre, The 24 Hour Plays is a one-night-only theatrical experience wherein six short plays are written, rehearsed, and presented within 24 hours.
It’s a never-to-be-repeated, blink-and-you-miss-it event and, now in its 5th year, is a highlight of the Irish theatre calendar.
Over 60 theatre artists are involved in bringing The 24 Hour Plays to the stage, including 6 playwrights, 6 directors, 26 actors, and over 20 backstage crew, designers, and producers. Everyone involved in The 24 Hour Plays volunteers their time and talent for Dublin Youth Theatre. Producers, directors, playwrights, actors, production assistants, designers, and stage managers give hours, days and, in some cases, months of work to put this show together to raise money for Dublin Youth Theatre.
The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin is generously supported by our primary sponsor, BNP Paribas Real Estate.
We are happy to continue our relationship with our partnering organisations: The Abbey Theatre, Dublin City Council Arts Office, Dublin Fringe, The Lir Academy, HP Ireland, Grehans Printers, Micromedia and many more sponsors who help cover the costs of production, ensuring the maximum profit for Dublin Youth Theatre.
