Garry Hynes’ DruidO’Casey wins Best Director at the UK Theatre Awards

Hearty congratulations for Garry Hynes on winning the Best Director award at the UK Theatre Awards. This award is in recognition of her productions of The Plough and The Stars, The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock.

These wonderful productions have already received acclaim everywhere they have played, and it is lovely to see Garry getting recognition for the extraordinary work it took to bring these productions to the stage.

“I am honoured to receive this award and wish to thank UK Theatre for recognising not only my work but the work of a legion of people who brought DruidO’Casey to life this year,” Hynes said.

Druid Theatre: Three Short Comedies by Seán O’Casey

Druid is back on the road with three short comedies by the great Irish playwright Seán O’Casey.

Playing in  GalwayDublinKilkenny or Wexford for these classic rip-roaring one-act plays.

A Pound on Demand 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, 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 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.
