This will be a particularly useful session for anyone interested in behind the scenes stuff, how a theatre is run, how the arts builds community, how to get jobs in theatres, how artists can and do (and must!) support each other, there’s nothing this man doesn’t know about the whole shebang.

Since lockdown began, Mark has been interviewing EVERYONE for his daily #TheAxisChats, so will be good chance to get some goss out of him too 😉 He’s a wise man to be sure with plenty of practical tips to share on living a successful life in Irish theatre.

We look forward to welcoming Mark to the virtual house on Wednesday, questions at the 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!

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.
