Abbey Theatre

Advertises a series of lectures to be held in London to raise money for the theatre. Curfew orders in Dublin, during the Irish War of Independence, had forced the closure of the theatre and so the Abbey turned its attention to fundraising in London. In an effort to stem a rising debt of £1,000 and hoping to prevent the the disbandment of the company, four lectures were planned. The playwrights W.B. Yeats, Lady Augusta Gregory, St. John Ervine and George Bernard Shaw all gave lectures in this bid to prevent bankruptcy.
