2006

In what is sure to be one of the most anticipated theatrical offerings in North America this year, the Guthrie Theatre Minneapolis ( 27th June - 1st July) and the Lincoln Center Festival New York (10th - 23rd July) will present Druid's critically-acclaimed DruidSynge, an epic traversal of the complete plays of John Millington Synge in a single day.

Lincoln Center Festival Director Nigel Redden described DruidSynge as ‘one of THE highlights of the 2006 Festival and a most eagerly anticipated event’.

Guthrie Artistic Director Joe Dowling said ‘it is indeed a thrill to bring this celebrated work to the Guthrie. I’m quite proud that Guthrie is offering this stunning work from my native country to America for the first time’.

Druid Theatre Company gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Culture Ireland which has made the Minneapolis and New York performances possible.
