Druid Debuts 2024

Tickets for Druid Debuts 2024 are currently sold out but do consider joining the waiting list.

This year’s plays, selected from over 550 submissions, will be announced in June.

Druid Debut 1: Thu 25 July, 11am
Druid Debut 2: Fri 26 July, 11am

Druid Debuts is our annual series of rehearsed readings of new plays which have been submitted through Druid’s New Writing programme.

Druid Debuts offers a unique opportunity to experience brand new plays fresh off the page and to share an open discussion with the writer, director and cast.

Each summer, the selected playwrights are provided with professional support, a director, cast and space in which to develop their script to a rehearsed reading level. After the reading, audience feedback is invited as a means of further development.

Many previous Druid Debuts have become full Druid productions such as Furniture by Sonya Kelly, Shelter by Cristín Kehoe, Helen and I by Meadhbh McHugh, Be Infants in Evil by Brian Martin and My Brilliant Divorce by Geraldine Aron.

Presented as part of Galway International Arts Festival 2024.
