DruidO'Casey World Premiere at the Town Hall Theatre

DruidO'Casey will have its world premiere at the Town Hall Theatre in July as part of Galway International Arts Festival 2023.

Druid today announced their most ambitious production yet - DruidO’Casey, a play cycle of Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy directed by Garry Hynes.

A century ago, Ireland was reborn in the fires of rebellion and war. The playwright Sean O’Casey bore witness to these seismic events and dramatised them as the Dublin Trilogy, three great works of Irish theatre, full of history, humanity and humour – The Plough and the Stars, The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock. 100 years later, Druid will weave O’Casey’s three plays into an epic theatrical event of conflict, national identity and the human toll of war, DruidO’Casey, Druid’s most ambitious production yet and one of the greatest Irish stories ever told.

Renowned for their previous play cycles (DruidSynge, DruidMurphy and DruidShakespeare), DruidO’Casey will be the most ambitious production in Druid’s history.
