Gate Theatre, Dublin City
The Gate Theatre, in Dublin, was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál Mac Liammóir, it offered Dublin audiences an introduction to the world of European and American avant-garde theatre as well as to the modern and classic Irish repertoire.
Today, in its 80th year, the theatre continues to offer a stimulating and inclusive programme, appealing to theatregoers of all generations. Orson Welles, James Mason and Michael Gambon all started their acting careers at The Gate. In 1991 the Gate became the first theatre in history to launch a full retrospective of the nineteen stage plays of Samuel Beckett. The Gate also featured three separate festivals of the works of Harold Pinter, the first theatre in Europe to do such retrospectives.
