VIDEO: The Abbey Theatre Celebrates 110th Anniversary


The Abbey Theatre, the National Theatre of Ireland is celebrating their 110th anniversary today, Dec. 27. Below, watch a tribute to The Abbey Theatre with an excerpt from Juno and the Paycock by Sean O'Casey.

The Abbey Theatre was founded as Ireland's national theatre, by W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory in 1904 "to bring upon the stage the deeper emotions of Ireland".
