He acknowledges the various venues and productions that cater for most if not all tastes and budgets. Simply, if you want to see a play that you are interested in, then you can. While Healy’s article gives a glowing review, it may be tinged with the glad eye of an enthusiastic visiter on a short stay in the city, but what surely can’t be denied in the genuine enthusiasm there is for quality theatre in Dublin.
