The Abbey Theatre in Dublin City was established in 1904. Inspired by the revolutionary ideals of its founders and the rich canon of Irish dramatic writing, the Abbey Theatre’s mission is to imaginatively engage with all of Irish society through the production of ambitious, courageous and new theatre in all its forms.
The Abbey Theatre is committed to lead in the telling of the whole Irish story, in English and in Irish, and affirms that the Abbey is a theatre for the entire island of Ireland and for all its people. In every endeavour, the Abbey Theatre promotes inclusiveness, diversity and equality.
