Dublin By Lamplight
By Michael West in collaboration with The Corn Exchange
Directed by Annie Ryan


Winner Best Ensemble The Stage Awards for Acting Excellence, Edinburgh 2005

Amidst the filth and fury of Dublin 1904, the theatrical event of the century is about to explode ... Will the Irish National Theatre of Ireland seize its chance for glory? Fading stars, rebels, whores, and romantics irreverently expose the strange and lurid world of DUBLIN BY LAMPLIGHT.

This is a night to change a nation’s destiny … unless it all goes horribly wrong.
