Druid was founded in Galway in 1975 by graduates of NUI Galway, Mick Lally, Marie Mullen and Garry Hynes, marking the establishment of the first professional theatre company in Ireland to be based outside Dublin. Since 1979 the company has had its own theatre on Druid Lane in Galway, which underwent an extensive refurbishment in 2009. The theatre serves not only as a facility for Druid but also for the promotion and the development of the arts in Galway.
Druid presents groundbreaking work from its base in Galway and aims to create electrifying theatre experiences for every person, in every place and every time they perform. Between 2009 and 2010 as well as touring extensively in Ireland, the company will have toured internationally to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA.
Druid passionately believes that audiences have a right to see first class professional theatre without having to travel long distances outside their own communities. The company has toured to every nook and cranny in Ireland and since 1982 has toured to key global centres around the world, making it one of the best-known theatre companies in the English-speaking world.
