Sean O’Casey Features in the Abbey Theatre’s 110 Moments

To celebrate its 110th anniversary the Abbey Theatre has produced a pictorial timeline of 110 important moments in its history from √Čamon de Valera’s performance in A Christmas Hamper in 1905 to their writers salons nurturing the next generation of irish playwrights. Sean O’Casey features in two of these first as a listing in the¬†submission logbook for Plough and the Stars and then in a stark image of the Abbey damaged terribly by fire in 1951 during a production of that same play. Remarkably the cast and crew managed to perform the play at the Peacock the next night.
