Dublin by Lamplight

What if the Abbey Theatre hadn’t survived beyond its opening night? 

Abbey Theatre presents Corn Exchange

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….

Dublin by Lamplight is written by Michael West in collaboration with the company and directed by Annie Ryan.

About Corn Exchange

Corn Exchange has made some of the most groundbreaking theatre in Ireland. Founded by Annie Ryan in 1995 the company has created an award winning repertoire ranging from contemporary site specific work, adaptations of classics and original theatre made in collaboration with the writer Michael West. The work combines strong physical theatre practice with dynamic text and cutting-edge design and technology to create a highly imaginative, transformational theatre experience. Previous work includes Freefall on the Abbey stage in 2010.
