Recall the years premeire

After the fire of 1951, the Abbey Theatre had to relocate to The Queens on Pearse Street. The Abbey Theatre reopened 15 years later to the day, in a new building designed by Michael Scott and Associates. On the night the new Abbey Theatre reopened in 1966, Walter Macken’s Recall the Years was performed. It was billed as “a dramatic presentation of the history of the Abbey Theatre – of its plays, playwrights, poets and performers, riots and reactions, from its inception to its burning”.
