Returning to Sligo for the first time since 2012’s sold out smash hit Big Maggie, Druid are thrilled to be back with their new production of Dion Boucicault’s The Colleen Bawn.
In this suspense-filled tale of tangled love, misplaced honour and downright skulduggery, will the course of true love run smooth when people 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 Big Maggie’s Aisling O’Sullvan and John Olohan joined by Druid founder Marie Mullen and Druid regulars Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan, Marty Rea and Maelíosa Stafford.
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!
