Abbey staff on the roof

This photograph was taken in 1975 of the Abbey Theatre staff on the roof of the Abbey Theatre. Staff from all parts of the Theatre, from stage crew, accounts, stage management, graphic design, maintenance, costume, box office, scenic art, carpentry, front of house and management are depicted. Clearly the photographer Fergus Bourke had his hands full trying to capture this moment as some hilarity is ensuing. Former General Manager Martin Fahy is seen in the front row along with Michael Colgan on the extreme right.
