The Abbey Theatre is a beautiful venue and the show was superbly done. Our brother summarized the story before we went but until we saw the show, we didn't realize what an important person Jimmy was. An excellent show.

I hadn’t been to the Peacock Theatre is a while and it was great to return for this production of ‘Class’. With the café being quite busy when we got there, there are not many seats or much space to wait before the doors open....More

This was hands down the BEST play/musical I ever saw! The actors are incredible and at the end, I was crying. I wish they had recorded the music from start to finish for people to buy!

My first, long awaited visit to The Abbey Theatre and I certainly was not disappointed in any way. We saw Jimmy's Hall and although I had seen the film, though not read the book, the play was probably the best theatre I have seen. All...More

No visit to Dublin can be complete with seeing a production at the Abbey Theatre. This is where one can glimpse the soul of Ireland and gain a better understanding of why the Irish have “such a way with words”. If you can also manage...More

The Abbey Theatre is Ireland's national theatre with a long (and often controversial) history. They have tried to challenge the boundaries of Irish theatre and have succeeded amazingly well with the current production of Jimmy's Hall. It brings together amazing acting backed up with song,...More

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
