Wexford Drama Festival celebrates its 57th year of amateur drama and this year will be held in the Jerome Hynes Theatre in the National Opera House for the first time. As one of the longest running festivals in the country, we have entertained Wexford audiences for 5 decades and are delighted to be moving to our new home in the National Opera House.
Bringing the best of amateur drama from around the county we have 8 nights of entertainment, drama and comedy on offer. From classics such as Juno and the Paycock to two plays making their debut on the amateur circuit, there's certain to be something to suit every taste throughout the festival.
Wexford Drama Group bring Closer to the stage for the first time on the amateur circuit. Closer is a razor sharp romantic comedy exploring the love lives of four very different people in London during the mid-nineties. Patrick Marber's extraordinary play won the Olivier award for best play and has been translated into thirty languages.
