Druid Theatre Company presents The House at Town Hall Theatre

Druid Theatre Company presents The House.
By Tom Murphy
Directed by Garry Hynes

It’s summer in 1950s Ireland and Mrs de Burca can sense the beginning of an end. With her health failing and her three daughters making their own way in the world, it’s time to sell the family home.

Down the town, a generation of young men have returned from the building sites of England to haunt the streets for a few weeks. Among them is Christy Cavanagh, a man with cash in his pockets, fond memories of a childhood spent with the De Burca family, and a plan to buy their house.

In Tom Murphy’s classic play, the hopes and dreams of Christy and the De Burca family entwine as they battle with their pasts and fight for their futures, in a tense drama of desire, belonging and possession.

Tony Award winner Garry Hynes directs a large ensemble cast including fellow Tony Award winner Marie Mullen as Mrs de Burca and Marty Rea as Christy Cavanagh, alongside Jessica Dunne Perkins, Darragh Feehely, Amy Molloy, Rachel O’Byrne and Donncha O’Dea, with further casting to be announced.

No one wrote 20th-century Ireland like Tom Murphy. Druid’s long history with the late writer began in the 1980s when he became the company’s writer in-association and their work together includes the world premieres of Conversations on a Homecoming, Bailegangaire and Brigit, as well as the internationally acclaimed play cycle DruidMurphy.

Show times:
September 14th (8pm), 16th (8pm), 17th (8pm), 19th (2.30pm, 8pm), 20th (8pm), 21st (2.30pm, 8pm)
