ASPECTS OF MICHEÁL MAC LIAMMÓIR AND THE DUBLIN GATE THEATRE
2 October - 29 October
Founded in 1928 by Micheál Mac Liammóir and Hilton Edwards, the Gate Theatre marks its 90th anniversary this year. As part of the Decade of Commemorations, Dublin City Library and Archive has compiled an exhibition from its own Irish Theatre Archive collections to celebrate both men, who at the end of their careers received the Honorary Freedom of Dublin. Micheál was prodigiously talented as an actor, playwright, set and costume designer, graphic designer and as a fluent Irish speaker, while Hilton was also an actor and a first-rate director. Free guided tours available.
