Abbey Theatre: Dear Ireland Continues

This event has ended

Online, Monday 10th August

Abbey Theatre: Dear Ireland Continues – A virtual ‘open house' performance of letters, poems, and songs that express the many different hopes, experiences, and challenges facing Ireland at this moment.

Abbey Theatre asked their audience to write a letter. To start it, ‘Dear Ireland', and talk to the nation about what it should be discussing. They received letters from all corners of the country and overseas, letters in Irish, English, and Irish Sign Language. Now 20 of these letters will be read from the Abbey stage by some of Ireland's leading actors. These readings will be interspersed with epic music performances by Damien Dempsey and spoken word performances from Lord Mayor Hazel Chu, Mrs. Sabina Higgins, Minister Catherine Martin TD, and Fintan O'Toole.

In these profoundly unsettling times for Irish society and the entire world, Dear Ireland Continues to give a voice to the nation. Join the Abbey for an evening of thought and song that tries to make sense of the world right now.
