Winner of Best Production at the Irish Times Irish Theatre awards, the theatrical highlight of 2012 is back! Hot on the heels of widespread international critical acclaim in 2012, Druid returns to glór with this rare opportunity to see these two remarkable plays by Tom Murphy in one week. Hailed by The New York Times as “epic theatre making”, by The Irish Times as “world-class” with The Daily Telegraph going on to say “attendance should be obligatory”.
This is a must-see event. DruidMurphy has already been a sell-out success on tour and is guaranteed to be the hot ticket again this season. See the shows individually or see both together with a special combination ticket offer. Early booking advised.
Presented in association with the NASC network and supported by an Arts Council touring grant.

DruidMurphy: Conversations on a Homecoming
Set in County Galway in the 1970s, conversations unfold in The White House pub when old friends reunite with Michael, recently returned from New York after a ten-year absence. He was the one who got away to live the dream and now he’s back.
DruidMurphy: A Whistle in the Dark
It’s 1960 and Michael Carney is an Irish emigrant living in Coventry, England, with his new wife Betty. Michael has integrated well into English society, but the same can’t be said of his wild brothers who are lodging with him. Tensions boil over after the arrival of his father and youngest brother from home.
