In a first for an Irish theatre company, Druid’s production of Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, in a version by Tom Murphy, will be live streamed to cinemas across Ireland and the world, direct from the Black Box Theatre, Galway.

Druid, Element Distribution and More2Screen are joining forces to bring the 2020 production of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, in a version by Tom Murphy to cinemas around the world. Audiences at home and abroad will be able to see the production live from Galway on Thursday the 5th of March at 7 pm. This will mark the first time an Irish theatre production will be live-streamed to cinemas internationally, shining a spotlight on Galway city and Irish theatre. 

“Element Distribution is delighted to be working with Druid to bring Tom Murphy’s version of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard to cinemas globally,” said Andrew Lowe, Element Distribution Company Director. “This is the first time an Irish theatre company’s work will be live-streamed in cinemas; so it really is a fantastic opportunity to work with another independent Irish company to make this happen.” 

“Druid is delighted to announce the first live-stream of Irish theatre production to cinemas worldwide,” said Druid Artistic Director, Garry Hynes. “This is an exciting project which will showcase Irish theatre to a larger audience across Ireland and the world. It is a privilege that we can do this live from Druid’s home alongside our Galway audiences.”

Bringing together one of the world’s great classic plays with one of Ireland’s greatest writers, Druid will present Tom Murphy’s version of Chekhov’s masterpiece The Cherry Orchard at Black Box Theatre, Galway and Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Dublin. A play about land, legacy, and the struggle between tradition and change, this will be the first major production of Tom Murphy’s work since his death in 2018.

Directed by Tony Award-winner Garry Hynes, with the acclaimed creative team behind DruidShakespeare, this production will feature a large company of actors, starring Derbhle Crotty and other leading members of the Druid Ensemble Garrett Lombard, Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan, and Marty Rea, alongside Ian-Lloyd Anderson, Síobhan Cullen, Megan Cusack, Peter Daly, Rachel Feeney, Helen Norton, and John Olohan.
