New Theatre Festival for Cavan

New Theatre Festival for Cavan

Cavan Theatre Festival is a new, ambitious programme which will run from July 17th to 20th this year.

It will be officially launched at the Abbey Theatre, Ireland’s National Theatre, during the celebrations of World Theatre Day on March 27th. The festival will provide a professional platform for both emerging and touring productions to engage with the people of Cavan and its thriving theatre community.

Dermot Bolger’s play ‘Walking the Road’, commemorating Cavan and the Great War, will be part of the festival. Cavan man Aaron Monaghan, who has achieved success at the Abbey Theatre, and the Druid Theatre Company, (and is co-founder of Virginia’s Livin’ Dred Theatre Company); will star in the inaugural programme.

Belfast Actor Stephen Rea, who is a founding member of Field Day Theatre in Derry and has a long association with the Abbey Theatre and collaborator with playwright Sam Shepard (Kicking a Dead Horse, Ages of the Moon) will officially Launch CTF to celebrate World Theatre Day 2014.
