Location National Library of Ireland Reading Room, National Library of Ireland, Kildare Street.

Early in his writing career, Bram Stoker was a successful but unpaid theatre critic for the Dublin Evening Mail. Taking place in the atmospheric Reading Room of the National Library of Ireland, this special event with Peter Crawley and Patrick Freyne of The Irish Times; Nadine O’Regan; and theatre critic, Saoirse Anton, takes a scalpel to the entrails of cultural criticism: from restaurants to theatre; television to visual art; and film to music. We examine how criticism has evolved since Stoker’s times and what are the omens for the future.

Hosted by Seán Rocks, presenter of Arena on RTÉ Radio 1.
