The Abbey's list of upcoming plays over the next few months is nice and varied. As You Are Now So Once Were We was part of the Absolut Fringe festival - it's nice to see a play progress from the Fringe to being more mainstream. Raoul sounds like circus-meets-theatre; that was a winning formula for CIRCA in the Gaiety so hopefully the Abbey can pull off a similar success. I'm also looking forward to Translations and Pygmalion - I'm told that tickets are already starting to sell for the latter.
If you're a student or under 26, have a look at the Access All Abbey offer. It's a very cheap way to get preview and standby tickets.
