Druid Theatre Company set for Longford's Backstage

The much talked about Druid Theatre company is set to take over Longford's Backstage Theatre in two weeks time.

The internationally acclaimed Druid Theatre Company descends on the midlands with one of the most talked about shows of the year.

Furniture by Sonya Kelly, a laugh-out-loud comedy that has audiences across ireland raising to their feet every night to thunderous applause comes to Backstage Theatre, Longford on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 23 and 24.

Speaking of its sell out run as part of the Galway International Arts Festival 2018, Garry Hynes recalls: “From the first previews the audience absolutely loved it…standing ovations every performance and queues around the block for tickets every day.”

Such was the success of the premiere that Druid has returned this year with a national tour taking in 13 venues across Ireland.
Both critics and audiences have universally loved this show with the Irish Independent calling it “whip smart” and “a triumph”, while audiences have flocked to social media to share their love of the show: “furniture is the funniest play I have seen in ages as it is hard to make me laugh…” “a real proper laugh…” “It is a Masterpiece in comedy! Must See!”

Performed by an ensemble of some of Ireland’s finest actors, Furniture comes to Backstage Theatre, Longford on Tues 23rd & Wed 24th April. Tickets €25 & €22 are available on 043 33 47888 or backstage.ie.
