Ireland’s renowned national theatre, founded by WB Yeats in 1904, has been reinvigorated in recent years by director Fiach MacConghaill, who has introduced lots of new blood to what was in danger of becoming a moribund corpse. The current programme has a mix of Irish classics (Synge, O'Casey etc), established international names (Shepard, Mamet) and new talent (O'Rowe, Carr et al).
Debate over the theatre's home – an ugly, purpose-built box from 1966 – has been silenced by economic realities, and so the city's theatregoers have had to make do with an acoustic makeover that has improved the experience of going to a play. Monday performances are cheaper. Work by up-and-coming writers and more experimental theatre is staged in the adjoining Peacock Theatre .
