Shelter

Galway International Arts Festival – We’re meant to be in here, we own this place. We’re the sons of Ireland and I don’t care what anybody says.

Fus is front–page news, but not all news is good. As he hides out in a disused warehouse, he soon learns that Tommy has lost his job and their hideaway is under threat. As friends trickle through the building, they drink, dance, row and reminisce while the clock counts down.

Shelter is a portrait of life on the edge. It is at turns brutal, touching and funny in its portrayal of those whose lives are washed over in the name of progress.

Shelter and Furniture are playing in repertory as part of Druid’s season of new Irish work at GIAF 2018 featuring two world premieres and two Druid Debuts.
