Since its founding, The Keegan Theatre has held the core belief that American audiences can be profoundly enhanced by the richness and depth of Ireland’s theatrical tradition – and vice versa.
Part of that philosophy is reflected in the Keegan commitment to producing at least one Irish work per season for audiences at home. The other part is bringing American theatre to Ireland.
Since 1999, The Keegan Theatre has produced 14 Ireland Tours, bringing American classics to Irish audiences. Over 4-8 week periods, actors and crew travel from city to city across the country, playing to enthusiastic audiences from Galway to Letterkenny. The experience has become a thrilling and rewarding highlight of Keegan seasons and a defining piece of the Keegan legacy.
