The National Theatre, comprising the world famous Abbey and Peacock Theatres, was founded in 1904 by poet William Butler Yeats, Lady Augusta Gregory and Edward Martyn. From the early work of Yeats, Synge, O'Casey and Shaw, through to those at the cutting edge of Irish theatre today, including Brian Friel, Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy and Marina Carr, the Abbey Theatre has been the cradle of new Irish writing for successive generations of Irish playwrights, actors, and directors. In recent years, the company has continued to attract critical acclaim at home and abroad for its award-winning productions, including Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel, Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme by Frank McGuinness and Tarry Flynn by Patrick Kavanagh. Alongside a packed schedule of productions, the National Theatre also has a continuous programme of educational, literary and archive activities, ensuring the work of the company reaches as wide an audience as possible.
