The Tron Theatre

2 – 28 May, 2016.

A programme of work celebrating irish culture one hundred years on from the Easter Rising.

Since its inception in 2010, Mayfesto has focused on presenting thematically linked, edgy new work, including seasons on women in theatre, colonialism and conflict in the Middle East. The festival provides a platform for new writing, and includes productions created by Tron Theatre Company alongside work from visiting artists, as well as readings and discussion

The Mayfesto programme brings together work for a very special season that looks back at historic events in Ireland, primarily the Easter Rising of 1916, and at contemporary theatre and issues in Ireland today. From masterpieces in modern Irish drama and award-winning new writing to the world premiere of Peter Arnott’s Shall Roger Casement Hang? Mayfesto 2016 uses the extraordinary power of theatre to mark one of the most significant events in Irish history.
