Druid at Home: Live Stream

Boland: Journey of a Poet


As part of the NASC Theatre Network, we’re delighted to have partnered with Druid for their latest Druid At Home live stream.
 
'If there was a narrative to my life in those years, then let this be the sound of it.'
 
With words by Eavan Boland, edited by Colm Tóibín and directed by Garry Hynes, Boland: Journey of a Poet is a new theatrical production exploring the mind and imagination of one of Ireland's great poets.
 
Performed by Siobhán Cullen (Once Upon a Bridge, The Cherry Orchard, DruidShakespeare: Richard III), and live streamed from The Mick Lally Theatre in Galway, this world premiere production examines Boland's relationships with family, poetry, memory, womanhood and national identity.
 
Also, inspired by Eavan Boland's mother, the expressionist painter Frances Kelly, Boland: Journey of a Poet will feature the Irish artist Debbie Chapman live on stage who will create a piece of art in response to the production. The poster for this production also features one of Frances Kelly’s paintings, a portrait of her daughter Eavan Boland as a young girl.
 
Boland: Journey of a Poet is the latest in the Druid at Home series of online theatre. Previously, Druid presented the world premiere of Sonya Kelly’s Once Upon a Bridge and an encore screening of their 2020 production of The Cherry Orchard.
 
Ticket Prices:
Early Bird Ticket: €15 (available until Sun 11 Apr)
Standard Ticket: €20 
Household Ticket: €30 | Support Ticket: €50
