In 2019, Druid’s production of Furniture by Sonya Kelly returns for a national tour following its sell-out run at the Mick Lally Theatre as part of the Galway International Arts Festival 2018.

Written by Sonya Kelly (The Wheelchair on my Face, How to Keep an Alien), Furniture is a lighthearted new play about perceptions and possessions. Told through the lives of six individuals, this fresh comedy looks at how the things we own shape our worldview and even ourselves.

'Furniture is not sentimental. You can love it, but it won't remember who you are.'
