Gate Theatre - Dublin City

Dublin landmark

The Gate Theatre, in Dublin, was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammoir, initially using the Abbey Theatre's Peacock studio theatre space to stage important works by European and American dramatists. The theatre later moved to 1 Cavendish Row (part of the Rotunda hospital complex) where leading Irish Architect Michael Scott undertook the revisions necessary to the room to convert it into a theatre.

Gate Theatre

 
The Gate Theatre, in Dublin, was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál MacLiammoir, initially using the Abbey Theatre's Peacock studio theatre space to stage important works by European and American dramatists. The theatre later moved to 1 Cavendish Row (part of the Rotunda hospital complex) where leading Irish Architect Michael Scott undertook the revisions necessary to the room to convert it into a theatre.

Edwards/McLiammoir Productions presented European plays in sharp contrast to the county kitchen fare available at the Abbey Theatre bringing the Irish Premieres of Ibsen and other such dramatists to the Irish public.

Orson Welles and James Mason started their acting careers at The Gate.

In December 1983 the directorship of the Gate was handed to Michael Colgan. In 1991 the Gate became the first theatre in history to launch a full retrospective of the nineteen stage plays of Samuel Beckett. This festival was repeated at the Barbican Centre in London and New York's Lincoln Center.

The Gate also featured three separate festivals of the works of Harold Pinter, the first theatre in Europe to do such retrospectives.
