Abbey theatre Presents
Corn Exchange

Dublin by Lamplight

Written by Michael West in collaboration with the company
Directed by Annie Ryan

18 March – 1 April
Previews on 18 & 20 March on the Abbey stage

The Corn Exchange's much loved alternative version of the founding of a national theatre.

Amidst the filth and fury of Dublin 1904, the theatrical event of the century is about to explode! Fading stars, rebels, whores and romantics irreverently expose the strange and lurid world of Dublin by Lamplight.

An instant hit when it first opened in 2004, this hugely entertaining and anarchic production is a night to change a nation's destiny! Unless it all goes horribly wrong...

Starring original cast members Louis Lovett and Karen Egan.

"Awesome perfection"
Irish Times

"A tour de force of theatrical vision...wickedly entertaining"
