This sweeping play follows the lives of two young footballing heroes from the tenements of Dublin through the 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 Sean 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 some Druid favourites including Aaron Monaghan, Eamon Morrissey and Derbhle Crotty.

Winner in 2009 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.

The company will be joined by five young people recruited locally in Dublin.
