The Abbey Theatre's founders W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory had the vision to 'bring upon the stage the deeper thoughts and emotions of Ireland'. Our ambitious artistic programme of classic Irish drama and new Irish writing holds a mirror up to Irish society. Over the years, the Abbey has nurtured and premiered the work of major Irish playwrights such as Marina Carr, Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy and a new generation of writers such as Richard Dormer, Stacey Gregg, Nancy Harris and Elaine Murphy. We also nurture a new generation of Irish artists through our artistic development programmes and commitment to discovering new acting, writing and directing talent.

This is for those who tried to read the book and failed. Fantastic production and outstanding performances. Funny, thought provoking, tragic, and explicit. I'd recommend the cabaret seating onstage. A real insight into Joyce's Dublin.

I have just been to see Dermot Bolger's dramatization of Ulysses at the Abbey Theatre. He has managed to conjure up a sparkling, witty, dynamic production from what is in my opinion, a turgid and uninspiring work. The original has neither story, plot nor character...More
