What you'll do

Get a truly behind-the-scenes perspective on the workings of the Abbey Theatre’s costume department, by coming in first thing in the morning as we’re opening up for the day ahead. We’ll have a cuppa and talk through the costume design process, and I’ll give you unique access to sketchbooks, costume-fitting pictures and the finished product. Later that evening, take a seat to enjoy a new stage adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s award-winning novel, Room, at Ireland’s national theatre.

Niamh

I am Head of Costume at the Abbey Theatre since 2007, an exciting role which involves facilitating and supporting designers, directors and actors from the start of rehearsals to closing night. I also work as a freelance designer for theatre and on a diverse range of design commissions from events to merchandise. I am passionate about the collaborative art of theatre and good design.
