The Lost O’Casey on in The Abbey Theatre

Nannie’s Night Out is a lost Sean O’Casey play, taking its inspiration from real people and places of Dublin’s inner city, performed at the Abbey Theatre only once, in 1924.

Reframing this work as a catalyst for urgent action, this blistering production propels the lost Nannie into a contemporary Dublin.

Spinning outwards from the stage onto the streets, this potent and timely project invites audiences into a thrilling reimagining of the work, inside the places, language and politic of the lost play in our changing capital.

ANU’s work delves into historical and contemporary events, with scalpel like precision and dreamlike intensity, bringing the voices of communities and untold stories to the fore; derived from historical events each project contains multi-narrative strands, inviting audiences to experience the work through a lens of now-then now.
