Theatre - 5th Dec - 19th Jan
Recognised as a master-piece The Dead, the short story from James Joyce’s Dubliners is dramatised for the Abbey stage by one of Ireland’s most important playwrights Frank McGuinness.
The year is 1904 in the city of Dublin. Gretta and Gabriel Conroy attend the Morkan Sisters annual dinner on the Feast of the Epiphany and the last day of Christmas. An evening of laughter, music and dance ends in an epiphany for Gabriel.
Joe Dowling, former Director of the Abbey Theatre, now Artistic Director of the Guthrie Theatre in America returns to the Abbey and Ireland to direct a stellar cast of Irish actors.
