Druid is back on the road with three short comedies by the great Irish playwright Seán O'Casey.
Join us this winter in Galway, Dublin, Kilkenny or Wexford for these classic rip-roaring one-act plays.
A Pound on Demand (1939) is the tale of Jerry and Sammy who badly need a quick injection of cash to continue their night on the town.
In Bedtime Story (1951), poor John Jo Mulligan learns the hard way that inviting members of the opposite sex to Miss Mossie's lodging house comes with serious consequences.
All hell breaks loose in The End of the Beginning (1937) when Darry Berrill and his wife Lizzie agree to swap their household roles - and that's before Darry's clumsy friend Barry arrives.
These short tales of misadventure will be directed by Garry Hynes and performed by Druid ensemble members Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan and Marty Rea with Venetia Bowe, Liam Heslin and Sarah Morris.
