A century ago, Ireland was reborn in the fires of rebellion and war. The playwright Sean O’Casey bore witness to these seismic events and dramatized them as the Dublin Trilogy, three great works of Irish theater full of history, humanity, and humor, all written in the immediate aftermath of the tumultuous period. Druid, “Ireland’s most prestigious theatre company” (Irish Independent), will weave O’Casey’s three plays into an epic theatrical event: DruidO’Casey.
Directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes, a single company of 18 actors will perform all three plays, drawing parallels between an Irish past and an international present. Each play will be presented twice in Ann Arbor, with the opportunity to view each work individually, across the week, or as a single immersive experience.
Renowned for their previous play cycles (DruidSynge, DruidMurphy, and DruidShakespeare), DruidO’Casey is the most ambitious production in their history.
