CÉAD MÍLE FÁILTE WELCOME
Our aim is to promote Irish literature and the arts by various means, such as public readings, stage presentations, lectures and friendly get togethers, and even musical evenings for the enjoyment and entertainment of all those interested, not only in the works of our great writers and artists, but also in Irish folklore.
For a comparatively small country, Ireland has made a disproportionate contribution to world literature in both the Irish and English languages. The island’s most widely-known literary works are those of James Joyce, Brian Friel, Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde.
Let us not forget that Ireland also boasts four Nobel Prize winners for literature:
- W B Yeats 1923
- George Bernard Shaw 1925
- Samuel Beckett 1969
- and Seamus Heaney 1995
MIAS has been invited by the Princess Grace Irish Library to provide a short performance on St Patrick’s Day, 17 March, together with a musical interlude by the Academie de Musique, which will be filmed.
We will be the only theatre in Monaco, at the moment, to be performing, with the approval from the Palace.
We are hoping H.S.H Prince Albert of Monaco will be able to attend.
We’re living in unprecedented times and following the announcement made, we, like most other theatre companies, have taken the decision to postpone our next production of some of Eugene O’Neill’s works.
We will advise you when we will be performing, and hoping that it’s not in the too distant future. Stay home, keep safe.
Our 20th Anniversary Celebration was held on Friday, 14 March 2014.
H.S.H Prince Albert of Monaco attended the performance on the works and sayings of Brendan Behan, the 20th Century’s most controversial Irish dramatist and drinker, at the Auditorium of the Lycée Techique.
