About

Previews: Thurs 4 Aug & Sat 6 Aug

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, How to Keep an Alien), 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 of Fiona Bell, Anna Healy, Bosco Hogan, Fionn Ó Loingsigh and Naima Swaleh.

Druid’s world premiere production of The Last Return will open at Galway International Arts Festival this summer before touring to Traverse Theatre as part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


Druid gratefully acknowledges the support of The Arts Council of Ireland and Culture Ireland.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and The City of Edinburgh Council, with additional support from The Scottish Government Performing Arts Venues Relief Fund.
