Back in the DYT house for Ask The Pro on Wednesday, May  13 at 7.30pm, is Mr. Aidan Gillen ⚡ ALL WELCOME TO JOIN – not just members (and not just Dubs!) ⚡

Aidan Gillen is a DYT alumnus, whose Big Show was “Midsummer Night’s Dream” at The Project. Many moons ago…

Aidan moved to London when he was 19 and has appeared in more telly and film than you can shake a stick at –  from starring roles in Queer as Folk to RTE’s Love/Hate, Shadow Dancer and HBO’s The Wire and (OMG!) Game of Thrones. His most recent role was in The Abbey’s production of Faith Healer, which was due to happen from March 31 and we all know what happened then…

He has won three Irish Film & Television Awards and has been nominated for a British Academy Television Award, a British Independent Film Award, and a Tony Award.

Of his youth theatre experience, he says, “Youth theatre had a huge impact on my life. It was my life from the age of fourteen to seventeen, and I spent every spare hour in 23 Upper Gardiner Street (the home of Dublin Youth Theatre). I met some great people and fluked into a world that I wouldn’t have come across—acting and theatre—that has now become my life. It defined and formed me, and what I do.

We look forward to welcoming Aidan back to the virtual house, get yer questions ready folks!

See you Wednesday at 7.30.


To join the session, email Graham by 4pm on Wednesday and he’ll let you in at 7.30! admin@dublinyouththeatre.com

Submit your question/s via email in advance or be prepared to ask them using the zoom chat on Wednesday.

To allow for a quality questioning and answering experience, spaces are limited, so it’s first come first served!


DYT members – present and past – and friends are invited to join us, from the comfort of your own home, for a series of weekly Question & Answer sessions with experienced theatre professionals.

Each week, special guests (many of whom are ex-DYTers) will tell us a little bit about their journey, how they got to where they are, who and what inspired them, the challenges they faced to make it and what they’re up to these COVID days.

If you’ve got a question about theatre, being (or becoming) a theatre professional, now’s your chance to #askthepro.


More announcements after DYT workshops every Saturday, on Facebook and Instagram.
