The Colleen Bawn by Dion Boucicault, directed by Garry Hynes

A suspense-filled tale of tangled love, misplaced honour and downright skulduggery.

Tony Award-winning Druid’s new production of Dion Boucicault’s The Colleen Bawn will be a Christmas treat in the specially transformed Black Box Theatre. This lively, poetic ‘mortgage melodrama’ captures the shifting sands of Irish identity, an issue that continues to have a strong resonance in this era of ‘Gatherings’.

Director Garry Hynes has once again assembled an outstanding cast with some of Ireland’s leading actors, including Marie Mullen, Maelíosa Stafford, Aaron Monaghan & John Olohan to ensure that this ‘Colleen Bawn’ will be a source of mirth and edge-of-the-seat engagement for all the family. Queen Victoria saw the play three times – don’t expect Victorian costumes (!)… Just expect to be enthralled.

Oh, and there’s music too!
