Droichead Presents Drama: Theatre Club Autumn/Winter 2023
Droichead are thrilled to announce our THEATRE CLUB for Autumn/Winter 2023. This season we have a programme of six unique shows, including a work in progress and a trip off-site to the Abbey Theatre as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.

The season will kick off with Quintessence Theatre returning with their acclaimed show ‘The Curious Case of Albert Cashier’ before embarking on a national tour; and also features the return of Fishamble and Pat Kinevane with his acclaimed new production ‘King’.

Set up in 2017, and heading into its 11th season, Droichead Theatre Club brings audiences together to see a play, and like a book club, our audiences can share their views, thoughts and impressions informally post show with the cast and creatives. If this is your first or your 50th play, it doesn’t matter, come along, and be part of the drama at Droichead.

Six great shows (including one work in progress) for €77 including ticket & return bus trip from Drogheda to the Abbey Theatre. BOOK ONLINE or call 041 9833946 to be part of the Drama at Droichead.

Cassandra is having a crisis. Its easy being talented, ambitious and charismatic. What’s hard is living in the real world. What happens when the consequences of our poor choices hunt us down and punish us? What happens when the borders of what is real and what is imagined begin to melt. A dark, new comedy-musical.

Contains references to Borderline Personality Disorder, Self Harm, Verbal and Physical Violence.
