Drum Belly

The Abbey Theatre's latest production begins previews on 5th April with the official opening next week on 10th April.

It's a new commission written by Richard Dormer and directed by Sean Holmes.  Set in Brooklyn in the summer of 1969, it explores the world of Irish gangs - all second generation Irish - and how they deal with their place in New York, their heritage and their day to day lives, set to a backdrop of a changing America.

Look out for a review from Dave and myself later next week.  The play runs until 11th May.  Tickets are available from the Abbey box office as usual.  Prices range from €13 - €40.
