Founded by Hilton Edwards and Micheal Mac Liammoir in 1928, the Gate theatre today offers theatrical space to important works by European and American dramatists. The productions presented here were in juxtaposition to the country kitchen fare available at the Abbey Theatre bringing the Irish Premieres of Ibsen and other such dramatists to the Irish public. Some of the well-known artists such as Orson Welles, James Mason and Michael Gambon started their acting careers at The Gate. What make this theatre outstanding is that it is the only theatre in the world to have existed with only two artistic directors.
