Druid’s world premiere production of The Last Return by Sonya Kelly opened at Galway International Arts Festival 2022 and now embarks on an 8-venue tour of Ireland.

Not all good things come to those who wait.

One final night. One last chance. Five people queue for a ticket to the hottest show in town. All they must do is simply wait in line. But what in life is ever simple?

Who will triumph, who will fail, and who will walk away with… The Last Return?

A new play by acclaimed playwright Sonya Kelly (Once Upon a Bridge, Furniture), The Last Return is a thrilling comedy about conflict, peace and the pursuit of territory at any cost.

Sara Joyce (Once Upon a Bridge) directs a cast that includes Anna Healy, Bosco Hogan, Rebecca O’Mara and Naima Swaleh.

Druid’s world premiere production of The Last Return opened at Galway International Arts Festival 2022 and then played Edinburgh Festival Fringe (where it won a Fringe First Award) and Dublin Theatre Festival. In Spring 2023, The Last Return embarks on an 8-venue tour of Ireland.

Winner – Scotsman Fringe First Award 2022
Finalist – The Susan Smith Blackburn Prize 2022
