Show Your Love for “Show Me Love”

By Dublin Youth Theatre


‘Show Me Love’ will be the 38th Annual BIG SHOW for Dublin Youth Theatre. 'Show Me Love’ follows fourteen Dublin teenagers on what seems like just another ordinary day. Hearts will break, hormones will rage, and loyalties will shift, as our young heroes wrestle their conflicting emotions and each other. Today they will face choices that could alter the course of their adult lives. Some will rise, others will fall.

A large ensemble, multiple narrative play, ‘Show Me Love’ will explore and celebrate the ever changing, often complicated, emotional life of a small group of Dublin teenagers as their paths intersect and collide over the course of 24 hours on the last day of summer.

Since its foundation in 1977, by Educational Psychologist Paddy O’ Dwyer, Dublin Youth Theatre has forged a unique contribution to the worlds of theatre and youth work.
Dublin Youth Theatre successfully delivers quality creative experiences that promote artistic, personal and social development for young people aged 14 to 22 in Dublin.

Dublin Youth Theatre delivers this through a full and varied drama workshop programme and the production of excellent, exciting and challenging theatre made by young people. DYT is committed to maintaining a high artistic standard in its productions and to engaging with contemporary theatre and youth theatre on a local, national and international level. DYT engages leading theatre artists and skilled, experienced youth theatre practitioners to deliver its artistic programme.

Dublin Youth Theatre has built a reputation over the last 38 years for producing high-quality, exciting, challenging theatre. The annual programme includes the production of 6 to 12 plays. These are a combination of high profile shows in recognised professional venues and low-key productions which allow new members with little or no experience an opportunity to perform in a 'safe' environment. In 2011 DYT presented 3 new pieces of work BATSH*T, CAPITAL and 'Six Characters in Search of an Author'. In 2012 DYT performed the highly successful RSVP as part of the Dublin Fringe Festival (DFF), RSVP was a co-production between DYT, DFF and Coney, a UK based professional theatre company. In 2013 DYT commissioned emerging Irish writer Shaun Dunne to write a play specifically for the members of DYT, 'I’ve to Mind Her' which premiered in the Dublin Theatre Festival. DYT returned to the festival in 2014 with an adaptation of Wedekind’s classic text 'Spring Awakening', directed by Gyuri Vidovszky.

By funding this production you will help DYT meet the costs of producing this brand new play and ensure that these young people will experience the excitement and benefits of creating and staging a professional production.

Cast Photo's

We just got our beautiful cast photo's, taken by the amazing Ste Murray, and they look incredible! Our cast of 14 is a mixture of young people who have been with us for just one year and some who have been with us 3 years or more, some are making their stage debut for DYT while others have been involved in numerous productions including Big Shows in previous years. Its an exciting time for the cast as they start to see production elements come to life and really get to explore their characters and the production shots we will release over the next week reflect that, as we see the young people in character and costume. All of this is made possible due to the kind support of our FundIt Funders, but we are still a long way off our target with only 5 days left on our campaign. if you can help us we would really appreciate it no donation is too big or too small. In exchange we have some special rewards, including discount codes for tickets to the show. We hope to see you all in Smock Alley!
