Audiences will experience O’Casey’s work as never before: directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes, a company of 18 actors will perform the three plays in one day, drawing parallels between an Irish past and an international present. Watch all six-hours of the play in one day (with plenty of breaks!) on Saturday, October 7; Wednesday, October 11 or Saturday, October 14. Or, buy a weeknight package, and watch the trilogy as single-play performances over the course of three nights. Dinner specials at partner restaurants will be available throughout the run.
DruidO’Casey begins with The Plough and the Stars, the story of newlyweds Jack and Nora Clitheroe living in a city on the brink of rebellion in 1916. In The Shadow of a Gunman, Donal Davoren, Seumas Shields and Minnie Powell find themselves tragically tangled up in the Irish War of Independence. The saga ends with Juno and the Paycock and the Boyle family who see their fortunes dashed amidst the upheaval of the Irish Civil War.
This North American premiere is presented by NYU Skirball in partnership with The Public Theater.
