This exhibition celebrates the work of Anne Makower and Christopher Fitz-Simon in theatre, opera, television and radio. Both worked in RTÉ from the earliest days, Christopher initiated such iconic series as Tolka Row, and Anne produced most of the classical music programmes throughout her extensive career whilst juggling her other career as a soprano in recitals, oratorio and opera. Christopher held executive positions at the Abbey Theatre, the Irish Theatre Company and the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. He has lectured on Irish theatre in ten countries on four continents and had published widely on the theatre in Ireland. The exhibition includes a recent interview with poet and playwright Vincent Woods.
