The Lir Academy and Tiger Dublin Fringe

We are delighted that so many of our acting, stage management and technical theatre students are involved in this year’s Tiger Dublin Fringe. We also have a fringe first from actors Aisling O’Mara and Robbie O’Connor who have written, produced and act in Rebel Rebel which tells the story of two actors who abandon their roles in a production in The Abbey Theatre in 1916, take up their guns and march to Dublin castle. They fire the fist shots of the rebellion and change the course of Irish history.
