A monthly literary cabaret takes place at Buswells Hotel on Molesworth Street, Dublin every third Sunday of the month at 7pm.  Leonor Bethencourt welcomes the audience warmly and comperes the evening with wit and charm. The show comprises scenes from theatre and from the movies, intermingled with musical and comedy acts, poetry and new writing.

The theme of the show is different every month: from Forbidden Love, to Espionage, to Road Trips to Gothic Horror.

Buswells Hotel is the atmospheric setting for these literary and entertaining nights. Steeped in history, Buswells has been witness to significant political and social events as much as to honeymoons, love stories and heartbreak.  Actors, writers, poets, comedians and musicians of the highest standard, take the theme of the month in their stride and deliver first class performances. Tickets can be booked through Eventbrite or at the door on the night.
