'The Shadow of a Gunman' A Druid Production

March 08 @ 08:00 pm - March 09 @ 09:30 pm

Friday 8th & Saturday 9th March 2024 Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm Age Suitability: 12+ In the spring of 2024, Druid will tour Ireland with Sean O’Casey’s classic play The Shadow of a Gunman. Set against the backdrop of the Irish War of Independence, and by turns tragic and comic, O’Casey’s The Shadow of a Gunman is the tale of an ambitious young woman who dreams of a life beyond her Dublin tenement with the mysterious neighbour downstairs. Directed by Garry Hynes, The Shadow of a Gunman features Druid Ensemble members Rory Nolan and Marty Rea, alongside Gabriel Adewusi, Clare Barrett, Caitríona Ennis, Bosco Hogan, Sean Kearns, Robbie O’Connor and Catherine Walsh. This five-star production was first produced in 2023 as part of DruidO’Casey, Druid’s play cycle of Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy, which also includes The Plough and the Stars and Juno and the Paycock. DruidO’Casey broke box office records when it was announced in early 2023 and sold out weeks in advance so early booking is strongly recommended for this national tour of The Shadow of a Gunman. ★★★★★ ‘a revelation … magnificent’ The Observer ★★★★★ ‘Druid triumphs yet again … spectacular’ Irish Mail on Sunday ★★★★★ ‘Druid Theatre’s staging unearths unexpected dimensions in the three plays’ Financial Times
