1 April-30 May 2006. All of Dublin is taking part in this festival to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of world-famous Irish playwright, novelist and poet Samuel Beckett, with light projections by American artist Jenny Holzer at night and Motion Images street theatre inspired by his plays filling the streets. The Gate Theatre hosts performances of Becketts works including a reprise of the acclaimed production of Krapps Last Tape starring John Hurt. Other highlights include a world premiere of LImage, a performance based on a nine-page sentence written by Beckett in French, and Becketts Ghosts featuring four of his later plays: A Piece of Monologue, That Time, Breath and Not I.

Centenary Shadows: Photographs of Samuel Beckett by John Minihan at the National Library of Ireland is just one of the many exhibitions dedicated to one of Dublins most famous sons. Admission free. 29 March-27 May.
