An award winning production of Sean O'Casey's The Silver Tassie comes to the Everyman Palace in October. Presented by the Druid company and directed by Garry Hynes, this is something special, running from the 12th to the 16th of October inclusive.
The sweeping play follows the lives of two young footballing heroes from the tenements of Dublin through the WW1 battlefields of France, and their return home.
Using all the resources of the theatre including live music and dance, this is an epic staging of one of O’Casey’s great plays.
Tony Award-winner Garry Hynes directs a cast of 19 – Druid’s biggest ever company of actors – and welcomes back Druid favourites including Aaron Monaghan, Eamon Morrissey and Derbhle Crotty.
The company will be joined by fi ve young people recruited locally.
Winner of 12 major international theatre awards in 2009 including Best Production, Outstanding Director and Outstanding Ensemble, Druid is back with a production you simply won’t want to miss.
