From Portumna to Glenamaddy, Ballinasloe to Inis Meáin and many more communities in between, trailing the voices of Murphy, O’Casey, Gregory and others, Druid will bring exciting, bold and memorable theatre, resonating with the geography and landscape of our home terrain.

A company of Druid actors, creatives and technical personnel will settle in Galway communities where they will live, work, create, perform and then tour. Offering access to rehearsals, interactions with the company and some unique outdoor performances, Druid will engage with local groups of all ages, interests and cultures across Galway County. The tour will culminate in a month-long residency at The Mick Lally Theatre during Summer 2020.
