Sunday Morning Coming Down was chosen by Druid as part of their Debut Series for New Writing in July 2009. It sold out to great success at the Galway International Arts Festival and the Playwright, Mick Donnellan, went on to produce the Play himself in March 2011. Directed by Mick, the Play immediately sold out the Town Hall Studio Galway for five nights on its first run. Following that, the crew brought the Play to County Mayo, selling out Lisloughrey Lodge, Cong, The Valkenburg Niteclub, Ballinrobe, and the Linenhall Theatre in Castlebar. It returned to enjoy large audiences on the main stage of Galway’s Town Hall and then went on a national tour covering – Glor Ennis (County Clare) St. John’s Theatre, Listowel (County Kerry), Cork Arts Theatre (County Cork) and finished with a sold out run at The New Theatre, Dublin.
