Theatre for One

Six of Ireland’s leading playwrights present original 5-minute plays performed by one actor for one audience member.

When it premiered at Cork Midsummer Festival in 2019, Theatre for One played to 5-star reviews across the board, and audiences queued outside the Cork Opera House to experience live theatre in an intimate setting.

Part peep-show booth, part confessional, and completely visceral, this performance takes place in a specially-designed, state-of-the-art theatre booth in the foyer of the Abbey Theatre, for one actor and one audience member at a time.

Presented by the Abbey Theatre and Dublin Theatre Festival. supported by Accenture and Dublin City Council.

Written by Marina Carr, Stacey Gregg, Emmet Kirwan, Louise Lowe, Mark O’Rowe, Enda Walsh

Directed by Eoghan Carrick and Srđa Vasiljević
