A suspense-filled tale of tangled love, misplaced honour and downright skulduggery.
Tony award winning Druid’s new production of Dion Boucicault’s The Colleen Bawn will be a Christmas treat in the specially transformed Black Box Theatre.
Will the course of true love run smooth when those around you will stop at nothing to make sure you marry the right woman?
Director Garry Hynes has once again assembled an outstanding cast of some of Ireland’s leading actors, including Marie Mullen, Maelíosa Stafford, Aaron Monaghan & John Olohan to ensure that this Colleen Bawn will be a source of mirth and edge-of-the-seat engagement for all the family. Queen Victoria saw the play three times, but don’t expect Victorian costumes, just expect to be enthralled…
Oh, and there’s live music too!
