DRAMA IN IRISH... OPEN TO EVERYONE, The only Irish language theatre in the world and one of Ireland s oldest theatres DRÁMAÍ GAEILGE... OSCAILTE DO CHÁCH, AN T-AON AMHARCLANN GHAEILGE AR DOMHAN AGUS CEANN DE NA hamharclanna IS ÁRSA IN ÉIRINN Céad Míle Fáilte! An Taibhdhearc was first opened in Pronounced Taiv-yark, it means ghostly vision which is formed from two Irish words, taibhse meaning ghost, and dearcadh meaning view so the founders wanted to achieve an otherworldly vision on the stage. Micheál Mac Liammóir put on the first ever play, based on an old Irish legend about the doomed lovers, Diarmuid agus Gráinne. He designed the set and costumes, and hand-painted the gold peacocks on the stage curtains, which are there to this day. The show was a sensation in its time. Over fifty years later, Gabriel Byrne played the part of Diarmuid on the Abbey stage! Siobhán McKenna started her theatrical career in An Taibhdhearc, then went on to wow Hollywood with her film roles in Dr Zhivago and Of Human Bondage, as well as working with Orson Welles. She garnered several Tony nominations on Broadway. Her most famous role was as St Joan in G.B. Shaw s play, which saw her on the cover of LIFE magazine! Bris Cos! means Break a leg, which is what actors say to wish each other luck before a show. Did you know that the leg in question is not part of your anatomy, but a black curtain through which the actor must go- or break- before arriving on stage? Speaking of Irish, it is said that the phrase do you dig? comes from the Irish an dtuigeann tú? meaning, do you understand? Tá áthas orainn go bhfuil an scéal seo á léamh agat, agus tá súil againn tú a fheiceáil istigh in amharclann na Taibhdheirce. Céad Míle Fáilte romhat.
