Dublin, Ireland 2015...Dramatic Tours went on a new tour i 2015. Last time was to London in 2004.This time to Dublin, Irland.
And now everybody knew the destination.
partisipants were members of "Det Dramatiske Selskab" with an
aim to watch shows in Dublin.
First on a guided tour in the Irish capital
And some food after a long travel.
Checked in to the hotel and had a short walk down to the river
First play: The Pillowman
An Irish black comedy play that tells the tale of Katurian, a fiction writer living in a police state, who is interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a number of bizarre child murders occurring in his town.
We could all agree that it was a lovely piece.
And we also saw "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by W. Shakespeare, where the plot was moved from the forests of Athens and into a psychiatric hospital. No photos available.
A statue of the Iris novelist, playwright and poet Oliver Goldsmith at Trinity College, Dublin.
The statue of the Irish Republican, socialist and trade union leader James Larkin stands in the middle of O'Connell Street and incites the masses.
The last day of the tour we made a visit to the Guinness factory / museum
with a wondeful view over Dublin from the sky bar,
and where I got Shamrocks in the foam of my glasses.
A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of Ireland. Saint Patrick, Ireland's patron saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the Christian Holy Trinity. The name shamrock comes from Irish seamrˇg, which simply means "young clover".
Thanks for a nice tour.
