All female cast for Druid’s new show

Wednesday, 17th May, 2017 1:00am

Druid will present Crestfall, Mark O’Rowe’s unflinching portrait of three women on the precipice of catastrophe, at the intimate Mick Lally Theatre during this year’s Galway International Arts Festival.

The all-female cast has been announced featuring Kate Stanley Brennan (who lately performed in The Night Alive at Belfast’s Lyric Theatre) as Alison, with Siobhán Cullen (recently seen in the National Theatre’s production of The Plough and the Stars) as Olive, and introducing Amy McElhatton, newly graduated from the Lir Academy, in the role of Tilly.

The stories of these three women converge in one place, on one evening, under an unforgiving sky. Told in Mark O’Rowe’s unique rhythmic style, Crestfall is a play about love in a dog-eat-dog world. The play premiered in The Gate Theatre in 2003 and has since been produced throughout the world from London to New York.

Druid’s production is brought to life by the same team who staged last year’s sell-out show, Helen and I by Meadhbh McHugh. Annabelle Comyn directs with design by Aedín Cosgrave, costumes by Doreen McKenna and sound by Philip Stewart.

“It’s great to be working with this fantastic team on such a powerful play,” said Artistic Director Garry Hynes. “Crestfall tells the story of three troubled but formidable women. The production will transform the space of the Mick Lally Theatre and it’s going to be hugely exciting.”

Crestfall runs from 14 – 29 July with a post-show discussion on 19 July featuring director Annabelle Comyn and Garry Hynes.
