As the production files of the Druid Archive continue to be catalogued, the abundance of wonderful visual material is making the project a joy to work on. The early 1990's onwards sees a series of photgraphic files from many of Druid's best loved works. Working with photographers such as Amelia Stein the photgraphic files of Druid theatre archive present snapshots of performers and performances ftaken during rehersal and production. From Irish tours to international tours, here is a selection of some pieces from the Druid theatre archive. These documents and all mother material will be fully available to researchers at the Special Collections/Archives reading room at the James Hardiman Library, NUI Galway early in 2011.
We would love to hear from you about these images or any other items from the archives. If you have seen any of these plays by Druid or Lyric and want to share any thoughts or memories please leave a comment under any post or else email an archivist directly here
