Five Favourites of 2017

FiveFavourites2018!

The following shows are selected from those that I saw and reviewed over the last 12 months.

There are plenty of shows that I didn’t get to see and lots that I saw for my own viewing pleasure rather than to review.

Of those I reviewed, and in no particular order, here are my Five Favourites of 2017:

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.
