'Love/Hate' actors Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Charlie Murphy are to team up with Sinead Cusack in a "chilling" new stage play.

Written by 'Intermission' and 'Howie the Rookie' creator Mark O'Rowe, 'Our Few and Evil Days' will debut on the Abbey Theatre's stage on September 26.

It is the first original piece O'Rowe has penned since 2007 hit show 'Terminus'. It will also feature Ciaran Hinds and Ian Lloyd Anderson.

The play is just one of several highlights of the Abbey Theatre's autumn/winter schedule.

Young playwright Shaun Dunne's latest stage play 'The Waste Ground Party' will debut on the Peacock stage later this year and will mark the 25th new play at the Abbey Theatre complex in the last five years.

Turning to the classics, Gavin Quinn, of theatre company Pan Pan, will direct William Shakespeare's comedy 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

George Bernard Shaw is one of director Fiach Mac Conghail's favourite Irish playwrights and he continues to champion Shaw's work by staging lesser known play 'Heartbreak House' this summer.

Oliver Goldsmith's comedy of deception and seduction, 'She Stoops to Conquer', will run over the Christmas period.

Several visiting companies will set up shop in the theatre in the next few months.

WillFredd Theatre's multi-award winning debut production 'FOLLOW' explores stories from the Irish Deaf Community.
