To mark Druid Theatre's 30th anniversary, one of the most ambitious projects in Irish theatre for many years was produced - to stage the entire canon of John Millington Synge's work, back to back, over eight hours - under the directorship of Garry Hynes. DruidSynge toured with the first ever staging of Synge's entire theatrical canon. This landmark tribute to one of Ireland's greatest playwrights is the first time that all of Synge's plays have been performed together, Playboy of the Western World, The Tinker's Wedding, Well of the Saints, Riders to the Sea, Deirdre of the Sorrows and The Shadow of the Glen. The tour
concluded its run on an island off the west coast of Ireland, Synge's artistic and spiritual home.
