Druid Debuts 2023

The plays and playwrights selected for Druid Debuts 2023 will be announced on Monday 19 June. Tickets will also go on sale that day.

Druid Debuts is our annual series of rehearsed readings of new plays which have been submitted through Druid’s New Writing programme.

Druid Debuts offers a unique opportunity to experience brand new plays fresh off the page and to share an open discussion with the writer, director and cast.

Each summer, the selected playwrights are provided with professional support, a director, cast and space in which to develop their script to a rehearsed reading level. After the reading, audience feedback is invited as a means of further development.

Previous Druid Debuts have subsequently premiered as full Druid productions including Furniture by Sonya Kelly, Shelter by Cristín Kehoe, Helen and I by Meadhbh McHugh, Be Infants in Evil by Brian Martin and My Brilliant Divorce by Geraldine Aron.
