PICK OF THE WEEK

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TICKET SEVEN DAYS - Lau­rence Mackin

DUBLIN THE­ATRE FES­TI­VAL Just when you thought it was safe to leave the the­atre after the cre­ative chaos of the Tiger Dublin Fringe, along comes the Dublin The­atre Fes­ti­val to kick you back into the stalls.

The fes­ti­val opened last night with five new shows (see ir­ish­times.com/cul­ture for reviews), chief among them Thomas Oster­meier’s Ham­let (above). We’ve picked one a day in the pan­els be­low for the week ahead. Among them are: Louise Lowe’s fi­nal part in her stun­ning Monto cy­cle; one of the hits of the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val Fringe, Ganesh Ver­sus the Third Re­ich ; and the lat­est from one of the best com­pa­nies in Ir­ish the­atre, Bro­kentalk­ers ( Fre­quency 783). We’ll have full reviews, news and fea­tures through­out the week, and a lit­tle the­atri­cal sur­prise of our own that we’ll lift the cur­tain on to­mor­row. See to­mor­row’s Week­end Re­view for de­tails.
