Since opening its doors in 1999, Bewley's Cafe Theatre has emerged as Ireland's foremost venue for Lunchtime Drama and has an international reputation for innovation and excellence, (Irish Times Judges' Special Award Winner 2004 and nominee 2018, 2022) while maintaining a uniquely Irish and personal touch.
The repertoire ranges from classic one-acts showcasing the wit of Shaw, Wilde and O'Casey to the very best of new Irish writing. The programme has a strong emphasis on comedy and theatricality and a visit is guaranteed to brighten up any afternoon.
Doors open at 12.50pm, the performance starts at 1pm and is over by approximately 2.00pm leaving the rest of the day to enjoy other Dublin attractions.
We have also introduced a new SOIRÉE performance, which takes place on the second Thursday of each run at 7pm. There is a bar available before the show from 6pm in the beautiful James Joyce room on the first floor
Prices for a performance are generally between €10 - €15, but will vary for special and off-site shows and some of our offerings will be free.
