The O'Malley family assiduously kept records of their activities. In the case of their work establishing the Lyric, this means that from its very earliest days, photographs, programmes, and often even scripts and other such useful material were kept for each production. Quite apart from its appeal to academic researchers and drama enthusiasts, some of these aforementioned photographs are simply lovely to look at. The slideshow above consists of just some of the images from the Lyric Theatre archive here in NUI Galway, and are of plays staged throughout the 1950s.
