Druid: The Galway Tour

In 2020, Druid will present The Galway Tour, a Galway 2020 commission.

In a large-scale tour, Druid will present some of the greatest Irish one-act plays, created, rehearsed and performed in the heart of local communities across Galway county and city.

With access to rehearsals, interactions with the company and some unique outdoor performances, Druid will engage with local groups of all ages, interests and cultures in towns and villages across the county. The tour will culminate in a month-long residency at The Mick Lally Theatre and other locations across Galway city.

The series of one-act plays will include: The Rising of the Moon, The Gaol Gate by Lady Gregory; A Pound on Demand, Bedtime Story by Seán O’Casey; The Briery Gap by TC Murray; The King of Spain’s Daughter by Teresa Deevy and On the Outside by Tom Murphy and Noel Donoghue.

Following government restrictions, Druid: The Galway Tour cannot go ahead as originally planned. This project taking place in communities throughout County Galway is very important to us. We are currently working with our partners on the project to see how and when we might be able to reschedule. Ticket holders will be contacted directly and patrons will be notified on further updates.
