IRISH STUDIES PROGRAM SCHEDULES LECTURES CELEBRATING
100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ABBEY THEATRE
The Irish Studies Program at Immaculata University will offer two lectures in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Dublin´s famous Abbey Theatre. The lectures are scheduled for November 10 and 17, at 7:30 p.m. in room 127 of Loyola Hall on the University´s campus.
The first lecture entitled "Curtain Up" will highlight the founding years of the theatre company; the second talk will feature prominent moments in the second fifty years. Sister Marie Hubert Kealy, IHM, coordinator of University´s Irish Studies Program will deliver both lectures.
The Abbey Theatre is the popular name of the national Theatre Company of Ireland. The name comes from the location of the theatre on Lower Abbey Street Dublin, and this December will mark the anniversary of the first production at that location on Christmas week 1904.
The lectures are free and open to the public; donations will be accepted in support of the Irish Studies Program.
Immaculata University, a Catholic, coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
