The Everyman, Cork city's most iconic theatre, will throw back the curtains and fling open the doors to the public once more - announcing that they'll be back in business from mid-September.
A receiving house for theatre, music, opera, comedy, dance and light entertainment, The Everyman - like countless other businesses across Ireland - has been closed since early March. Good news is on the horizon though as culture vultures will be able to get their fix from mid-September.
Housed on MacCurtain Street in the Victorian Quarter, the theatre was originally opened back in 1897 and has hosted many a play, concert and show since then.
Taking to social media to announce the big news, the team wrote:
"We will be re-opening our doors on Tues 15 Sept.
We are working very hard on creating a programme that will be as exciting, diverse and entertaining as we always strive for. We will be back in touch with you soon with some exciting programme announcements!"

We are thrilled to share some really big news with you... We will be re-opening our doors on Tuesday 15 September? We are reviewing work practices and procedures to ensure patrons, artists, performers, freelance workers, staff and volunteers will feel safe when in the theatre, with the necessary social distancing and hygiene measures in place. We are working very hard on creating a programme that will be as exciting, diverse and entertaining as we always strive for. We will be back in touch with you soon with some exciting programme announcements. Thank you once again for all the wonderful support – the words of kindness and encouragement, the survey participation and the many generous donations we are continually receiving since we closed our doors back in March, due to the COVID-19 public emergency. We cannot wait to welcome you back. From, The Everyman Team x
Steeped in history, locals are more than happy to hear they'll be back in business - welcoming the news and promising to call in as soon as September rolls around.
