Founded by Ciarán O’Reilly and Charlotte Moore, the Irish Repertory Theatre opened its doors in September 1988 with Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the Stars. The Irish Rep is currently the only year-round theater company in North America devoted to bringing Irish and Irish American works to the stage.
Recognized with the Jujamcyn Theatres Award, a special Drama Desk Award for “Excellence in Presenting Distinguished Irish drama,” and the Lucille Lortel Award for “Outstanding Body of Work,” The Irish Rep has celebrated the very best in Irish theater for over 20 years, from the masters to the new generation of Irish and Irish American writers who are transforming the stage. Nearly 40,000 audience members annually attend productions at the theater located in the heart of New York’s Off Broadway community.
