Why Watch Citysong

The play has won a Verity Bargate Award in 2017. Written by Dylan Coburn Gray, one of the most prominent theater writers today, Citysong portrays three generations of a Dublin family. Gray’s plays have received acclaim and he has won accolades for his ability to merge poetry and drama to create immersive experiences. His play, Boys and girls won him the Fishamble Best New Writing Award and was also nominated for the Irish Writers’ Guild’s Best Theatre Script Award. The spellbinding play gives an excellent peek into the life of people in Dublin, and the transformation of the city over the years. Gray’s talent is being able to make the audience empathize with his characters, and Citysong serves as the perfect example.

You will see everything from the birth of children, growing up, adolescence, and adulthood to late night taxis, discos, launderettes, and vigilantes, in this moving play. A portrait of the city is painted through spectacular characters, and the play evokes a great amount of emotion. Feel like you are a part of each of the characters’ lives, as revel in the joys and grieve in their sorrows. Do not miss this unforgettable confluence of drama and poetry!
