  W.B. Yeats has long been recognised as one of the greatest writers from Ireland.
He is best known as a poet in Ireland and Internationally.What has been less recognised,however is his contribution to Irish Culture as a playwright.
 We will celebrate the 150th year since Yeat’s birth by  having a production of ‘Cathleen Ní Houlihan’ by W.B.Yeats and Lady Augusta Gregory and ‘On Baile Strand’ by W. B.Yeats staged during this year’s Galway Fringe Festival and as part of the Worldwide celebrations Yeats 2015.These plays are a rare treat to see and will offer a unique way to ensure that the most vibrant,creative ,City of Culture in The West of Ireland-Galway,which Yeats loved and was inspired by,will pay fitting tribute to his literary genius.
