The Hot Press Newsdesk, 16 Mar 2012
Patti Smith and actor, playwright and Sam Shepard join forces on April 9 for an intimate night of readings and music in Dublin’s Abbey Theatre on April 9, which happens to be Easter Monday. Tickets priced €49.50 go on sale on Tuesday March 20.
“To have two world famous, iconic artists perform in support of young artists from the Abbey’s New Playwrights Programme is an amazing endorsement for the Abbey,” enthuses Abbey director Fiach McConghail. ‘It’s a tribute to their generosity and commitment to Ireland’s national theatre, a theatre founded by artists with a vision to build a theatre culture in Ireland for future generations.”
The aforementioned New Playwrights Programme will this year promote the burgeoning talents of Neil Bristow, Amy Conroy, Clare Dwyer Hogg, Damian Kearney, Tara McKevitt and Lydia Prior.
