AboutFACE Ireland are delighted to announce the three plays that will be featured in our Winter Pub Reading Series 2017.
The event will mark the opening of our new 2017 season in Dublin dedicated to developing and presenting exciting new plays, and celebrating our return to full-time production in Ireland after 10 years being primarily based in New York.
The Winter Pub Reading Series will feature rehearsed readings of 3 outstanding new plays, in a warm and welcoming pub setting. Each of the plays were developed at our NEWvember Festival. For our first Winter Pub Reading Series in Dublin, AboutFACE has selected three of our favourite plays from NEWvember that we are very excited to share with our audience. All moving, hilarious, thought-provoking and gripping, each promises to be a great night out at this lovely space at Toner’s pub. We can’t wait to share these terrific stories with you!
