Acting Out wins Irish Arts and Literature GALA award!
Acting Out has won a prestigious GALA award in the Irish Arts and Literature category for our shows, The Ref and The Paradise. The awards are bestowed every year by the NXF in the glamorous surroundings of the Mansion House in Dublin.
Artistic Director Howard Lodge said,
“ We are thrilled and humbled by this award! To get recognised by our community for our work is the ultimate reward, and we’d like to express a big thank you to the people that nominated us.
We deliberately make theatre that is accessible. But being accessible does not mean it can’t challenge, provoke and sometimes ask difficult questions of the community.
Huge thanks are due to the wonderfully talented people who made the shows. To Sean Denyer for writing The Ref and The Paradise and producing them too. To Mark Power and Ian Henderson for the insanely catchy songs in the Paradise, Nicola Mooney for her fabulous choreography and Hannah for her lighting design and Mark Power again, who with Cal Folger Day and Sean wrote the songs in the Ref. And finally to the fabulous actors in the group, who are like a huge extended family.”
Other winners included, Minister for Children, Katherine Zappone, who won Politician of the Year, and Broden Giambrone who won Person of the Year for his work with Ireland’s Trans community.

The Paradise- a new electro-pop musical comes to the
Dublin Gay Theatre Festival
Dublin’s oldest gay nightclub is closing down. A group of old friends gather to see the place off, but before they can do that, some old scores will need to be settled. Are there some things that just can’t be forgiven?
Set in 1993 and the present day, The Paradise is a new immersive electro-pop musical, with fiendishly catchy songs by the Irish duo, Eden.
Brought to you by the team behind last year’s festival hit, The Ref.
Performances at The Complex from May 1-6 at 9PM with matinees at 4PM on the 1st and 6th.
