A new immersive theatre production from ANU Productions will be opening next week in Dublin. This is the company that delivered the Dublin Tenement experience in Henrietta Street two years ago, and has since created and performed a number of equally successful site-specific theatre productions exploring historical events.

Glorious Madness is the new work. It provides an opportunity to see the Rising through the eyes of those whose actions and eye witness accounts provide invaluable testimony, and summons the glorious madness that burst through the city during Easter week 1916.

The cast takes the audience to the same streets that bore witness to the seismic events of almost 100 years ago and carries them to a time of terror, intrigue and infiltration that would shape a nation.

Starting next Tuesday 23 June, and continuing to Saturday 4 July, Glorious Madness will be performed at Noon, 1pm, 3pm and 4pm each day excluding Sunday. Some of the performances are already sold out, so don't delay to buy tickets if you want to be sure of seeing this latest production. The audience meets at the Dublin Discover Ireland Centre, 14 O’Connell Street, Dublin.

Glorious Madness
is presented by ANU Productions, Fáilte Ireland and Dublin City Council and coincides with the launch of Dublin Discovery Trails app.
