Cigarettes, censorship and sexism were at the heart of a discussion on Monday in the Abbey Theatre during the official launch of a section of the theatre’s newly digitised archive.

Seven of the National Theatre’s minute books, covering the period from 1904 to 1939, were made available online for the first time. The publication of the books, which were digitised in collaboration with NUI Galway, represents the first batch of the theatre’s archive to be made available to the general public.
