Marie Mullen spoke on behalf of DruidShakespeare director Garry Hynes: ‘It is a privilege to accept these awards for DruidShakespeare. Many people came along the road with us on this production, from the very early stages to the final curtain and I would especially like to thank our co-producers, Lincoln Center Festival, our associate producers, Kilkenny Arts Festival, our funders the Arts Council and Culture Ireland, and of course our audiences. DruidShakespeare was a hugely challenging but richly rewarding experience and it is fantastic to reflect on that and to celebrate this evening with these awards.’


Druid would like to acknowledge the continuing support of the Arts Council, Culture Ireland, NUIG and St. Anthony’s
