'Furniture is not sentimental. You can love it, but it won't remember who you are.'
Druid Theatre Company has announced an extensive national tour of Sonya Kelly’s 'Furniture', which was a smash hit with audiences and critics alike at the 2018 Galway International Arts Festival (GIAF ) and as part of this national tour the show will take to the stage at Roscommon Arts Centre on April 16 and 17 at 8pm nightly.
Written by Sonya Kelly (The Wheelchair on my Face ), and directed by Cathal Cleary, a native of Castlerea, County Roscommon, 'Furniture' is a light-hearted 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.
Described as 'wickedly insightful' (The Irish Times ), 'laugh-out-loud funny' (The Sunday Times ) and 'whip smart' (The Irish Independent ) this fresh comedy is a definite must see for 2019.
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.
The production embarks on an eight week tour to 13 counties in Spring - Dublin, Limerick, Kerry, Clare, Galway, Donegal, Sligo, Roscommon, Cavan, Longford, Kilkenny, Wexford and Cork.
