In May 1987 the Everyman Theatre Company celebrated its 25th anniversary with a Gala night held on 28 May. However, December 1987 witnessed the closure of the Everyman Playhouse in Father Mathew Street, where it was based since November 1972. In March 1990, Everyman resumed performing after it moved to the renovated Everyman Palace Theatre in MacCurtain Street.
Some of the highlights of theatre in Cork in 1987 inluded Volunteers by Brian Friel, a play about the experience of a group of Irish political prisoners who, while digging on an archaeological site, discover their own personal histories. Other plays staged this year included Sive by John B. Keane, and Tom Stoppard's Doggs Hamlet; Cahoots Macbeth.
