More than 30 productions from ten countries will be staged in Dublin this autumn as part of the 2010 Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival.

Following three years of planning, this year's Dublin theatre festival will include a special focus on Polish theatre.

As well as hosting a number of Polish dramas, the festival will also investigate contemporary Polish culture and its relationship with Ireland, and stage a symposium looking at the cultural and creative impact of immigration here.

The festival will also feature Irish productions by companies including Druid, Pan Pan and Rough Magic and some venues outside the city centre, including the Axis in Ballymun, will be used.

Other international productions to be staged during the festival include Enron and Circa.

The festival runs from 30 September to 17 October.
