Druid’s ambitious take on O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy

Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy, The Plough and the Stars, The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock, will be staged by Druid Theatre at this year’s Galway International Arts Festival in what the company describes as “its most ambitious production yet”.
