The view from the stalls at the Dublin Theatre Festival
The festival's 60th anniversary line-up is one of the most eclectic yet, writes Andrew Lynch
The Dublin Theatre Festival got off to a rocky start. Its first programme in 1957 was marred by the notorious Rose Tattoo affair, when a producer found himself arrested for obscenity because the Tennessee Williams play he had staged allegedly featured a condom (in fact, it didn’t because they were impossible to find). Happily, the DTF recovered from this early setback and its 60th anniversary line-up is one of the most eclectic yet.
