Druid Theatre in Galway

Druid Theatre, Galway

The Druid Theatre Company, was founded in Galway in 1975 by graduates of the NUIG, Garry Hynes, Marie Mullen and Mick Lally- the first Irish professional theatre company to be established outside Dublin. It has led the way in the development of Irish theatre in the ensuing years and is generally credited (along with Macnas, and the Galway Arts Festival) with making Galway one of the premier cultural centres in Ireland.

Druid has toured extensively in Ireland and recent international touring includes visits to London, Edinburgh, Sydney, Perth, Washington, D.C., New York and Tokyo; winning a formidable international reputation for both classic work and new work, and making the company one of the most well-known in the English speaking theatre world.
