The 67th Ballyshannon Drama Festival opens on Saturday the 9th of March and runs to Sunday the 17th of March. We have another nine nights of fantastic theatre lined up for you, well worth the price of the season ticket! Check out the Festival webpage for more information on each production.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, and Happy Birthday Earnest! Not only is today the most romantic of all days, the 14 of February also marks the anniversary of the very first production of ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’! The play was first performed in St. James’ Theatre, London, on this day in 1895, as you can see from the attached playbill. The fact that the play is still keeping audiences entertained 124 years later is testament to its brilliance and Wilde’s comic wit. Come along to the Abbey Arts Centre tonight to celebrate with us! Tickets €12/€10. Curtain at 8.30pm.
