Trinity College Dublin

The Trinity College Dublin Shakespeare Festival

Trinity College is Ireland's oldest and most prestigious university and was founded by Queen Elizabeth 1st in 1592 just two years before A Midsummer Night's Dream was first performed. William Shakespeare was a 28 year old actor and playwright performing his own plays in London and on tour in the open air. Trinity’s early years ran parallel with the creation of these great works and it is possible its first scholars would have seen the great man perform live.

This beautiful Elizabethan College is the perfect setting for open air Shakespeare to be performed in the 1st Dublin Shakespeare Festival. The British Shakespeare Company will perform alongside other events both professional and amateur, throughout the week as the work of William Shakespeare is performed throughout Dublin's most idyllic locations.
