We’d love if you could provide us with feedback on Dear Ireland III by completing this short survey.

Dear Ireland will continue with a series of three minute postcards from underrepresented voices in Irish society.

Featuring will be a number of the Abbey’s previous 5×5 partners, along with pieces from other collaborators the Abbey has been forging relationships with, some of whom have been the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Working with groups who are disenfranchised and marginalised, we asked them ‘What does it feel like to be you, right now, in Ireland?’

Dear Ireland III provides an opportunity to develop theatre that needs a national voice.

In these profoundly unsettling times for Irish society and the entire world, this evening of songs, stories and poems will try to make sense of the world around us.
