Dermot Bolger brings Cabra and Finglas Characters to the Abbey

Co Author:
As part of the National Neighbourhood: Press Play project, the writer Dermot Bolger has written 4 wonderful monologues about Cabra and Finglas characters. On 14 December 2016, Cabra & Finglas Adult Education Centres and Cabra For Youth gathered on the Abbey Theatre stage. On this cosy, festive afternoon, 30 local people were welcomed by the new Abbey Theatre Directors, Graham McLaren and Neil Murray, for a workshop with Phil Kingston (Community & Education Manager, Abbey Theatre), and were presented with the newly commissioned Monologues by Dermot Bolger. Over the coming month, four local people will work with directors Phil Kingston, Mark O’ Brien (axis:Ballymun) and Betty Duffy to bring these monologues to life. They will be performed on the Abbey Theatre stage and at the National Museum, Collins Barracks as part of a final showcase on 22 February 2017.
