Abbey Theatre and National Library in Ireland (Student Led)

May 16, 2018
Meeting at the Students Union, departing to Dublin.
12:00 - 22:00

Attendees: 60 


The English Society are hosting a trip to visit the Dublin Writer’s Museum and the Yeats exhibition in the National Library in Ireland. Attendees will get a tour of the historic theatre and experience a live theatrical performance.  This event will allow students of English and those interested in the area an opportunity to expand their knowledge and experience a play realised on the stage.


The Abbey Theatre is the national theatre of Ireland, founded by W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory to showcase new, independent Irish dramas and establish a national, cultural heart. Students of English will likely have studied a number of texts that originated in the Abbey Theatre and will be aware of the theatre’s importance.  The play we will be going to see is 'Cyprus Avenue', a play with is both darkly funny and deeply unsettling, it stays with you long after the final actor leaves the stage.


This Student Led activity is open to all students and is an all day event, 10+ hours including travel time. 


This activity will cost £20pp. 


Please note that tickets are being sold for a limited time only and booking for this event will close on Tuesday 1st May.
