Niall Buggy on the return of Druid’s hit comedy
ONE OF the highlights of last year’s Galway International Arts Festival was Druid’s production of Sonya Kelly’s scintillating comedy, Furniture. A big hit with critics and audiences, it makes a welcome return to the Town Hall Theatre next month as part of a national tour.
Comprising three short two-handers, all revolving around an item of furniture, Kelly’s play has lots of laugh-out loud moments, zinger lines, sharp insights, and moments of touching tenderness. “When we furnish our home we mark our territory and a huge underlying theme of the play is about physical territory and emotional territory,” Kelly [pictured below with director Cathal Cleary] observes of Furniture. “We decorate our territories with furniture. The furniture itself doesn’t know it exists, sometimes it travels on without us and we don’t know.”
