The Abbey Theatre returns back home

The Abbey Theatre returns back home

We’re back home at the Abbey and looking forward to welcoming you.

Following a successful run of The Plough and the Stars at the OReilly Theatre (which is currently on a 7 week tour of Ireland and the UK), the doors of the Abbey stage auditorium are once again open.

Preparations are in full swing for the forthcoming run of The Picture of Dorian Gray, which is on the Abbey stage from Thursday, 27 September. This adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s iconic fable by acclaimed director Neil Bartlett has been specially commissioned by the Abbey Theatre for the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival.

Also as part of the festival, we are proud to bring together two exciting theatre artists, Tom Creed and Gary Duggan, to present Shibari. Opening on the Peacock stage from Thursday, 4 October, this Abbey Theatre commission explores the connections between the lives of six people in modern day Dublin.

Finally and also as part of the festival, actor Eamonn Morrissey will take to the Peacock stage on the 11/12 October for a work in progress performance of Maeve’s House. This story tells of the life, times, and writings of Maeve Brennan; a brilliant, witty, yet tragic woman. Maeve’s House is directed by Oonagh Murphy.

Patrons can avail of some great special offers and a limited number of €13 tickets for all Abbey Theatre performances, available to everyone. To book for any of these shows, call our Box Office team on (01) 87 87 222.

I will be in Dublin from Sunday evening, Oct. 6, 2013 thru Wednesday Oct. 9th.  Is there any thing playing during this time?
