Druid mark 20th anniversary of hit play

The debut production took the world by storm, receiving critical acclaim on Broadway and in the West End, before going on to win four Tony Awards.

This month, Druid present a new must-see production of the brilliantly subversive The Beauty Queen of Leenane by Martin McDonagh, on the twentieth anniversary of its debut.

The production will tour nationwide, starting in Galway’s Town Hall Theatre before performing in Cork, Limerick and Dublin and then embarking on a tour of the US.
