Druid Theatre Company can be touted as a torchbearer in promoting Irish theatre outside of Dublin. It owes a lot of its recognition and fame to the well-known Irish playwright of the early 1900's, John Millington Synge. One of his most acclaimed works, ‘The Playboy of the Western World', produced and performed in 1975 at this theatre, won huge accolades and shot the Druid straight into limelight. Since then it has been a never-ending journey of touring around (mainly Europe) and being a major platform for aspiring Irish writers. Although it's popularly known for showcasing productions of Synge's plays, it also has names like Martin McDonagh, Geraldine Aron, John B Keane Sive to embellish its status! Druid productions are held at two venues, at the Chapel Lane and at the Town Hall Theatre.
