Centenary Year celebrations

2024 marks 100 years since the founding of Dundee Dramatic Society. Our centenary year shows will be:

*One Woman and her Bitch by William Lyons 1-2 November – A short play by Professor William Lyons, graduate of University of Dundee, and former Head of Philosophy Trinity College Dublin. This is a theatrical, challenging, and comic dish of Aristophanes, Brecht, and Panto. A homeless woman lives in a big city with her dog Cerberus. It has lots of wit and fun with some sharp political spice.

The Steamie (the play) by Tony Roper 27-30 November – (Play version) It’s Hogmanay and Dolly, Magrit, Doreen and Mrs Culfeathers, with a little help from the not-so-handy Andy, are in a Glasgow wash house getting the washing done before the bells.

**Updated Covid guidance from 31 April 2022**

In line with Government guidance, and the removal of legal requirements, we have reopened with full capacity booking in the auditorium. The wearing of facemasks and taking contact details is no longer be a legal requirement. We will continue to carry out enhanced cleaning before, during and after performances.
