Druid on tour to 10 Irish venues this summer

Thursday 14 April 2022

Druid today announced their full 10-venue summer tour of Billy Roche's The Cavalcaders.

This classic play from 1993 will open in The Mick Lally Theatre, Druid’s Galway home, in late May, followed by stops in Sligo, Longford, Roscommon, Limerick, Tralee, Wexford, Waterford, Thurles and Dún Laoghaire.

The Cavalcaders is a comic and tender portrait of life in small town, pre-Celtic Tiger Ireland and the men who lived there. Terry and his friends Josie, Rory and Ted spend their days as cobblers and their nights as The Cavalcaders, a barbershop quartet of local renown. But life has taken its toll on Terry and past betrayals cast long shadows.

Billy Roche’s memory play takes you on a journey back in time to the 1990s, to heartache, companionship and the redemptive power of song. Druid Ensemble member Aaron Monaghan directs an all-singing cast led by fellow Ensemble member Garrett Lombard, which also includes Amelia Crowley, Naoise Dunbar, Sean Kearns, Éilish McLaughlin and Tiernan Messitt-Greene.
