Abbey Theatre poster design from the 1970s and 1980s
Playboys, Paycocks and Playbills is a wonderful tribute to the talents of two graphic artists associated with the Abbey Theatre in the 1970s and 1980s, Kevin Scally and Brendan Foreman. The exhibition not only represents a changing time in graphic design and the representation of the Abbey Theatre, but also represents different styles of printing and a broad range of productions, actors, directors, costume and set designers.
The exhibition first went on display at the National Print Museum (Dublin) in September 2008 and continues to tour the country to venues such as the Pearse Museum, Glor, and Draiocht. For information on hiring the exhibition, please contact us.
