About the Project

The aim of the Lost-theatres project is to make critical, historiographical and cultural interventions in narratives of theatre history, to reach both subject specialists and a wider public audience. It reflects a desire to produce accounts that give greater attention and emphasis to theatre and performance space and to the popular, as well as the national stage. To achieve this an innovative blend of research, digital visualisation and oral history will be used to explore and communicate these places of performance. Currently, three theatres from 20th-century Dublin are in the process of being visualised:

Abbey Theatre, 1904

Theatre Royal, 1935

Queen's Theatre, 1951
