Druid returns to Coole Park this August for an outdoor production of Thomas Kilroy’s The Seagull [after Chekhov], directed by Garry Hynes.

Exclusively for GIAF 2021, Druid will film this production and present it online for audiences all over the world to enjoy on demand.

Kilroy sets Chekhov’s play in a large country house in the West of Ireland which makes Coole Park in County Galway the perfect location.

Isobel Desmond and her son Constantine leave London to spend the summer at the family home in Ireland where they will battle artistic disappointments and unrequited love in this classic tragicomedy.
