2017 really was a year of some fantastic theatre in Dublin. It’s easy to forget that we have such a wealth of talent among us, many of whom go above and beyond all in the name of their art. A huge thank you to all teams that put in such a stellar effort for our entertainment. With the world the way it is, we need art as much as ever.
