Lyric Theatre, Belfast

Situated on the bank of the river Lagan, the Lyric Theatre has been at the heart of Belfast’s cultural life for more than 60 years.  The only full-time producing theatre in Northern Ireland, the Lyric has helped launch the careers of many local actors including Liam Neeson, Ciarán Hinds and Adrian Dunbar, and its commitment to staging innovative productions of the highest quality has helped it earn a unique and cherished reputation throughout Ireland.  Alongside numerous awards for drama, the Lyric won widespread praise and a Sterling Prize nomination for its newly-built home on the site of the previous theatre, which was opened by Brian Friel in 2011.
