Tony award-winning Druid presents DruidMurphy -- Plays by Tom Murphy - the story of Irish emigration; a story both of those who went and those who were left behind.
Told through three of the greatest plays of Tom Murphy; Conversations on a Homecoming, A Whistle in the Dark and Famine, DruidMurphy is a major celebration of one of Ireland's most respected living dramatists.
Crossing oceans and spanning decades, DruidMurphy is directed by Garry Hynes, described by The New York Times as 'probably the foremost interpreter of Irish drama in the world today', and covers the period from The Great Hunger of the 19th century to the 'new' Ireland of the 70s, exploring what we mean when we call a place home.
Part of the London 2012 Festival -- the finale of the Cultural Olympiad - DruidMurphy promises to be one of the theatrical events of 2012.
