One of the greatest Irish stories ever told
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
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.
Audiences will experience O’Casey’s work as never before: directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes, a company of 18 actors will perform the three plays in one day, drawing parallels between an Irish past and an international present. You can also enjoy the shows separately choosing to see 1, 2 or all 3.
Renowned for their previous play cycles (DruidSynge, DruidMurphy and DruidShakespeare), DruidO’Casey will be the most ambitious production in Druid’s history.
