The Gate Theatre Dublin


The Gate Theatre has been, artistically and architecturally, a landmark building for over 250 years. Established as a theatre in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammóir, the Gate offered Dublin audiences an introduction to the world of European and American avant-garde theatre and also classics from the modern and Irish repertoire. It was with the Gate that Orson Welles, James Mason, Geraldine FitzGerald and Michael Gambon began their prodigious acting careers.

In 1991, the Gate became the first theatre in the world to present a full retrospective of the nineteen stage plays of Samuel Beckett.
The Gate continues to represent Ireland at the very highest level of artistic endeavour and internationally its reputation has never been higher, receiving numerous invitations each year to major festivals all over the world.
