the risen people is currently showing in the abbey and is well worth a visit. set around the 1913 lockout it is both witty and entertaining.
I went to the Abbey Theater - my first visit - to see "The Risen People". The theater has excellent sight lines from all seats and is very comfortable to watch a 2 hour or so play and staff is extremely helpful and friendly The play we saw, while good, needs some work. A good story about the Lockout and... More
I saw the "The Risen People"at the Abbey theatre Dublin with some friends.The whole experience was fantastic. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful-and created an ambiance around the place that was a joy. This play was the inspiration for Plunkett’s novel Strumpet City.

This time when a new Irish friend suggested attending the theatre to see Major Barbara I jumped at the chance. We both were able to have tickets at significant reductions due to my senior age and her disability... More
