Note this review is no based on viewing a performance The Abbey Theatre is a more modern build than other theatres in the City and was rebuilt following a fire. It has a modern appearance and has an ‘underground’ theatre too.

This play is probably the best I've ever seen. It could not be classed as light entertainment or a fun night out but it was amazing, brilliant, intense, emotional, enlightening, moving. I was riveted. The cast are all unbelievably good, especially the younger ones who...More

We've been there twice now -- two years ago for _Donegal_ and in October for _Richard III_ and both productions were powerful and affecting. The Abbey, of course, is theatre history in Dublin, but we'd go there for its current excellence.

The cattle-herding style of the audience entrance, at 15 minutes to Start time, is not pleasant. Surely the Abbey management can come up with a more civilised way of dealing with its patrons. 15 minutes before Start time is not good enough in the Peacock...More

saw smaller play there, very good. When booking, its not clear you are there and you erroneously ask at the main Abbey door... nice friendly staff.

We found excellent tickets at noon the day of the show even though listed as sold out for Richard III and only 30 Euro per ticket. A real surprise in price and performance because similar quality in NYC would easily cost 300-500 dollars!

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
