5. ‘Hay Fever’ by Noel Coward @ The Gate Theatre
‘Hay Fever’ is currently running at the Gate Theatre, Dublin 1. This theatre is one of my favourite ones in Dublin and if you book ahead, and have enough time you should go for the pre-theatre dinner in Michelin starred Chapter One beforehand.
For tonights performance there is a free ‘pre-show’ starting at 6.30pm:
Director Patrick Mason discusses his current production of Noël Coward’s Hay Fever
Although the pre-show is free, it is a ticketed event so contact the box office.
