Druid brings hit play to Ramor
'Furniture' by Sonya Kelly, which was a smash hit with audiences and critics alike at the 2018 Galway International Arts Festival, stages at The Ramor Theatre, Virginia, this weekend.
Furniture is a lighthearted new play about perceptions and possessions. Told through the lives of six individuals, this fresh comedy looks at how the things we own shape our worldview and even ourselves.
The play received a staged reading in 2016 as a Druid Debut and had its world premiere as part of Druid’s remarkable season of new Irish writing at GIAF 2018.
Original cast members Niall Buggy and Garrett Lombard reprise their roles of George and Michael respectively, with Kate Kennedy, Ruth McGill, Rory Nolan and Helen Norton completing the stellar cast.
"I’m delighted that Druid’s production of Sonya Kelly’s Furniture will return as a national tour next year," said artistic director, Garry Hynes. "The huge success of Furniture at the Galway International Arts Festival this year shows that it is an exciting time for new writing and new talent in Ireland and we are glad to be a part of that."
Furniture runs at The Ramor Theatre on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th April. Tickets are on sale now on (049) 854 7074 or www.ramortheatre.com
