Fresh from runs in London and Dundee, Emma Donoghue’s Man Booker Prize, Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA winning?Room?is playing at the Abbey Theatre from 23 June to 22 July 2017.??Previously adapted for the screen, Emma Donoghue now brings the story to the stage featuring original songs by Scottish songwriter Kathryn Joseph and Cora Bissett.

Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma has been locked inside a purpose-built room in her captor’s garden for seven years. Her five-year-old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily, exists inside Room with the help of Ma’s games and his vivid imagination. But for Ma, the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.

This Irish Premiere marks the beginning of the Abbey Theatre’s Free First Preview initiative, where audiences are invited to attend the first preview of Abbey Stage productions at no charge.

It will be a first come, first served system on the day of the event, ensuring there are no economic barriers in place and that Ireland’s national theatre is open to all.? People can queue for a free ticket for?Room?on 23 June, or buy a ticket to performances between 24 June and 22 July.

Graham McLaren and Neil Murray, Directors of the Abbey Theatre said??A touchstone for many of our conversations and for our first season as Directors of the Abbey has been collaboration. This adaptation of?Room?has been a collaborative process between Emma Donoghue, director and songwriter Cora Bisset and songwriter Kathryn Joseph.?
