Nightly at 8pm and matinee on Saturday 25th January at 2:30pm
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 perfect post-Christmas treat.
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 DruidMurphy’s Marie Mullen, Maelíosa Stafford, Aaron Monaghan with Big Maggie’s John Olohan and Aisling O’Sullivan 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!
