Druid Theatre Company The Shadow of a Gunman By Sean O’Casey

23 - 24 February 2024
Tickets: €20 - €30 + Facility Fee

In the spring of 2024, Druid will tour Ireland with Sean O’Casey’s classic play The Shadow of a Gunman.

Set against the backdrop of the Irish War of Independence, and by turns tragic and comic, O’Casey’s The Shadow of a Gunman is the tale of an ambitious young woman who dreams of a life beyond her Dublin tenement with the mysterious neighbour downstairs.

Directed by Garry Hynes, The Shadow of a Gunman features Druid Ensemble members Rory Nolan and Marty Rea, alongside Gabriel Adewusi, Clare Barrett, Caitríona Ennis, Bosco Hogan, Sean Kearns, Robbie O’Connor and Catherine Walsh.

This five-star production was first produced in 2023 as part of Druid O’Casey, Druid’s play cycle of Sean O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy, which also includes The Plough and the Stars and Juno and the Paycock.

Druid O’Casey broke box office records when it was announced in early 2023 and sold out weeks in advance so early booking is strongly recommended for this national tour of The Shadow of a Gunman.
