Exclusive workshop with the National Theatre for School groups

Posted on: 28th March 2017



The National Theatre are coming to The Playhouse for 'My Country.' This is the only theatre in all of Ireland you will be able to see this production. There is a special matinee on Thursday the 6th of April and we are very excited to announce a very special workshop for school groups with Rosemary McKenna.

Rosemary McKenna, the Associate Director for My Country, is available to workshop school groups as part of the Thursday Matinee offering to schools. This would be show, post-show discussion and workshop. A unique opportunity to get a real insight into the how the show came together and what it's like to work at the cutting edge of modern contemporary theatre.
