Another excellent night at The Abbey Theatre last night. Come From Away was just fantastic, an amazing performance by all the cast. The Abbey is a great venue too, it has an intimate feel about it. Staff were friendly and professional, as usual.

Sorry Julia, I don't know. I'm just a punter who reviewed a play. Perhaps their own website will have the listing. The Theatre Festival is around that time. Paul
