DruidMurphy: Plays by Tom Murphy. Illistration by Catherine AshmoreDruidMurphy

From Ireland's internationally renowned Druid Theatre Company comes DruidMurphy, the epic story of Irish emigration, from The Great Hunger of the 19th century to the "new" Ireland of the '70s, told through three plays by Tom Murphy in the Eisenhower Theater. The UK press is raving about DruidMurphy. London's The Times calls it, "Truly epic! A richly textured and absorbing theatrical experience…compelling in its complexity and its emotional force," while the Financial Times says it is "urgent, visceral, and superbly acted. Murphy is, I suspect, the greatest dramatist writing in English." On October 20, a special marathon performance allows audiences to see the full three-play cycle in one day.
