Get involved: 100 Design / An Grianán Ambassadors – Audition to be our Ambassador

From 6pm to 9pm

We were delighted when our brochure designed by OD Design was selected for inclusion in Ireland’s 100 Archive, a living archive which maps the past, present and future of Irish graphic design. Each year an independent panel choose 100 significant projects from a pool of submissions, which becomes that year’s Archive Selection. Central to the design was putting our audience at the heart of the theatre and celebrating our community through An Grianán Ambassadors. Find out about 100 Archive, the design process and audition to be our next Ambassador from 6pm on the theatre plaza!

Performance: Waiting Tables for Godot

Lunch sittings at 7 PM and 8 PM.

Duration 35 minutes – Tickets are free but booking in advance is essential as seating is very limited.

Performed by Mockingbird Theatre Group (Ronan Carr and Anne Gallagher)

Conjoined twins wait tables as they wait for Godot to come through the front door. He is their prized customer and the twins rehearse and practice his arrival over and over again during the course of a never-ending lunch shift. However today is different. One of the siblings is beginning to lose faith and starts to question the existence of Godot. The play is funny, extremely fast moving and a touching observation on faith, love and co-dependency. And a major riff on Beckett.

Performed in the theatre’s cafe bar with soup served in bowler hats for the customers.

About Culture Night

Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. On Culture Night, arts and cultural organisations and venues of all shapes and sizes, including the National Cultural Institutions, extend their opening hours to allow for increased access to the public. Special and unique events and workshops are specifically programmed at participating locations and all events are available free of charge.

Culture Night has grown from a relatively small scale cultural event staged only in Dublin in 2006 to the significant national cultural event it now is, with some 350,000 people visiting museums, galleries, historic houses, artists’ studios and cultural centres across the country. The initiative has captured both the public imagination and the enthusiasm of artists and cultural organisations.
