Theatre Archives and Research Resources NUIG Theatre Archives

NUI Galway has extensive theatre archive holdings. There is a particular focus on the archives of companies such as the Druid Theatre, Taibhdhearc na Gaillimhe and the Lyric Players’ Theatre in Belfast. The University has recently completed the world’s largest theatre archive digitisation project in creating the Abbey Theatre Digital Archive, and recently added a new archive of the Gate Theatre Dublin. It has published the early minute books of the Abbey Theatre, a database of Shakespeare’s plays in Dublin, 1660-1904, and Belfast, 1820-1900, in addition to other digital collections.
