The Abbey Theatre is Ireland’s National Theatre. It was founded by Nobel Laureate William Butler Yeats and Lady Augusta Gregory in 1904 and has played a vital and often controversial role in the literary, social and cultural life of Ireland. Renowned as a writer’s theatre it has contributed some of the world’s greatest theatrical works from such writers as J M Synge and Sean O’Casey through to modern day classics from Brian Friel, Tom Murphy, Frank McGuinness, Hugh Leonard, Tom Mac Intyre and Sebastian Barry. In the Abbey's 2017 season, you can experience a number of ground-breaking stage adaptations (Room, Jimmy’s Hall, Ulysses, Let the Right One In), alongside some original dramatic works on the Peacock Stage such as Postsript, Forever, and Fire Below.
