The Play

CST and Druid Theatre Company presented this special two-night engagement featuring two of Ireland's greatest actors, Dearbhla Molloy and Dermot Crowley, as they took audiences on a virtual "stroll" through London’s National Gallery—discovering afresh the Museum's masterpieces through the poetic imagination of Irish writer Paul Durcan. Finding out why Cardinal Richelieu finds it "a hard old station staying off the drink" and why Van Gogh's mother "is so hot under the bra."
