DLI Summer School 2020

Saturday July 25 - Saturday 1 August 2020

University of Limerick

This is the 55th DLI Summer School and we return again to the beautiful and peaceful campus of the University of Limerick, situated five miles from Limerick City in a spectacular park on the banks of the River Shannon. The campus is ideally situated for bus and rail travel connections within Ireland and Shannon Airport is only a short distance away.

Living accommodation is provided in attractive village-style 5/6 bedroom apartments, each with ensuite facilities. All apartments have a comfortable living-room/fully fitted kitchen. There will be a full social programme for the week centred in The Stables where everyone can meet and mingle each evening.

Our team of Willie O'Brien, Ollie Kenny, Christine O'Brien and Elaine McLoughlin are looking forward to welcoming old and new participants to Limerick. This is the latest line-up:

Course A Belinda Wild's class is for newcomers to acting and directing. Those returning to drama after a break might also consider Belinda's course.

Course B Geoff O'Keeffe 's class is for those who wish to take up directing, or who already have some directing experience.

Course C Aaron Monaghan's class is for actors with some experience. (This course is provisional, depending on Aaron's acting commitments for 2020).

Course D Wayne Jordan will be working with experienced directors.

Course E Peter McAllister's course will be for experienced actors.

Course F Ciarán McCauley's class will concentrate on Movement and Physical Theatre.

Course G TBA
