Galway International Arts Festival’s production of the critically acclaimed Medicine by Enda Walsh will be heading to the United States after wowing audiences in Galway come September.

Starring the multi-award-winning actor Domhnall Gleeson alongside a sensational cast including Clare Barrett, Aoife Duffin and drummer Sean Carpio, Medicine will wow audiences in Galway in person and online next month.

Dark, absurd, and devastatingly funny, Medicine shatters the boundaries between cast and audience in the surreal tale of John Kane, where he is joined at a hospital gurney by a jazz percussionist, two women called Mary, a very old man and a giant lobster.

In person tickets for the Galway dates sold out in a record 18 minutes but tickets for the four livestreamed performances (15-18 Sept) and to watch on demand (20-26 September) are on sale now.
