Over 100 years after the partition of Ireland, the Abbey Theatre explores its consequences through Jennifer Johnston’s compelling Three Monologues.

Through the three interlinked stories of Karen, Christine, and Billy, these companion pieces tell the personal tragedies of victims of the conflict in Northern Ireland.  

The overall production is led by artist Maree Kearns and each monologue will be directed by one of our resident directors, Gea Gojak, Claire O’Reilly, and Laura Sheeran.
