Abbey Theatre is Ireland's national theatre, an excellent venue for performances of Irish plays as well as classic and contemporary theatre from around the world.
The mission and artistic policy of the Abbey Theatre is to create “world-class theatre that actively engages with and reflects Irish society, placing the writer and theatre artist at the heart of the organisation.”
The Theatre maintains a cherished archive of Irish plays, re-imagined and presented to international audiences. It aims to promote and develop the long-term success of Irish Theatre and many of their productions go on to tour nationally and internationally. The Abbey Theatre is, specifically, a writer’s theatre, “the cradle of the Irish literary movement and has produced some of the most significant and crucial plays of the 20th century.”
