For our live Performances on Screen, donations of $25 per viewer are suggested. You will be given the option to donate at checkout, or you can donate here. We recommend viewing this performance on Google Chrome, Safari, or Mozilla Firefox.
How do I watch a Performance on Screen?
We recommend viewing this performance on Google Chrome, Safari, or Mozilla Firefox.
Prior to your chosen performance, the link to our Theatre @ Home platform will be emailed to all registered attendees. To access the show, you MUST register for your chosen performance with an active Irish Rep email address and password, and use this Irish Rep email address and password to log in to our digital stage.
If you book less than 2 hours before the event begins, or do not receive the pre-show email outlined above, you can access your performance by heading to our Theatre @ Home platform athome.irishrep.org and log in using your Irish Rep email address and password (the same login information used to book the performance). Your chosen performance will be under the heading “Digital Stage”.
My performance is in less than two hours and I can’t see the “Watch Now” button – what do I do?

It is less than 2 hours before my Performance on Screen begins and I do not have a link – what do I do?
We have now switched our brand new Theatre @ Home platform – you will no longer need a dedicated link to access your performance. You can access your performance by heading to athome.irishrep.org and logging in using your Irish Rep email address and password. Your chosen performance will be under the heading “Digital Stage”.
If you need further support, please email email@example.com with a description of the issue and your phone number. An Irish Rep staff member will be standing by to assist.

Are these events free?
We are committed to making theatre that is affordable and accessible. In pursuit of this goal, we have chosen to make our scheduled Performances on Screen available for free. After the initial run, select Performances on Screen will be available on demand for $25 per production.
We ask that if you are in a position to support us, you might consider making a donation in conjunction with your chosen digital event if you have not done so already. Donations of $25 per show are suggested for each viewer who can afford to give. Your contribution will ensure that we can continue to offer top-quality digital events, keep our staff employed, and be artistically and financially ready to reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
