Abbey Theatre on Tour as part of the Bealtaine Festival

Date: 14/05/2015

Droichead Arts Centre, are delighted to welcome back the Abbey Theatre for the second year running, after their sell out show last year in the Arts Centre - Quietly.

This year, another great show will play at the Arts Centre. After a sell-out run at the Abbey Theatre and an international tour to New York, Maeve’s House is on tour as part of the Bealtaine festival. This delightful one man show is written by and stars Eamon Morrissey (Fair City), one of Ireland’s best loved actors.

Maeve Brennan was one of our greatest short story writers. Although she lived in New York, many of her finest stories are set in 48 Cherryfield Avenue, Ranelagh, Dublin where she grew up. By coincidence Eamon Morrissey was brought up in the same house. This beautiful poignant story features extracts from Maeve Brennan’s writing and presents a moving portrait of two artists in conversation across generations.
