Abbey Theatre closed until end of May

Quick Book

Please choose a production


Posted on: 16 March 2020

Following the public health briefing on Monday 16 March, Abbey Theatre Trust has taken the difficult decision to close our venue to members of the public and to cancel all performances until the end of May at the earliest. We will review this regularly and take advice from Government, statutory bodies and other organisations about the safety of reopening the theatre.

If you have tickets for performances in the coming weeks, we will contact you to make arrangements. Please be patient and do not contact the Box Office about exchanges and credit. As many of our volunteers fall into the at-risk categories and have now been advised to avoid all social contact, we are trying to manage this crisis with a very reduced number of volunteers. Be assured we will prioritise all current bookings and will be in touch as promptly as possible, but this process could take some time with limited resources.

As a result of having to take this action in the best interests of all our volunteers and audience members, we know there will be a significant impact on the Abbey Theatre as a vital cultural resource for the local community in the weeks and months ahead. If you are able to transfer your tickets to donations to help us to maintain our facilities and to continue with the work we do, we would be enormously grateful.

Please check our website for regular updates on specific productions and on general advice relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you for your support in the past and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Abbey Theatre soon.
