Event description

Description

Free guided tours of a new exhibition with Dr Mary Clark, Dublin City Archivist.

Founded in 1928 by Mícheál Mac Liammóir and Hilton Edwards, the Gate Theatre marks its 90th anniversary this year. As part of the Decade of Commemorations, Dublin City Library & Archive has devised an exhibition from its own collections to celebrate both men, who at the end of their careers received the Honorary Freedom of Dublin. Mícheál was prodigiously talented as an actor, playwright, set and costume designer, graphic designer and as a fluent speaker of the Irish language, while Hilton was also an actor and a first-rate director.

Admission Free: seats will be provided: charming stories about Mícheál will be told.

Tours for groups of 10+ at other times can be arranged by emailing cityarchives@dublincity.ie
