The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin is back for one night only!

The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin is back at the Abbey Theatre for its 11th annual fundraising event in aid of Dublin Youth Theatre.

On the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th January, and all within 24 hours, six short plays will be written, rehearsed and performed by the best of Irish writing and directing talent and over 30 of Ireland’s most recognised and beloved stars of stage and screen. A team of over 35 theatre technicians, including producers from The 24 Hour Plays® in New York, will facilitate the work.

All proceeds from this special gala fundraising event go directly to Dublin Youth Theatre to support the delivery of their artistic programme. Since the first benefit presentation in 2012, over €140,000 has been raised for DYT through ticket sales and donations. 

Dublin Youth Theatre is deeply grateful to everyone who has attended The 24 Hour Plays: Dublin over the years, and to over 400 participants who have volunteered their time and talent to this great cause!
