RTE Releases Wildfire’s ‘Synge’ on DVD
01 Oct 2007 :
Wildfire films in association with Galway based theatre company Druid and RTÉ, are set to release a unique DVD recording of all six of John Millington Synge’s plays.

The DVD, entitled ‘DruidSynge: The Plays of John Millington Synge’, features all six of Synge’s plays as performed by Druid: ‘The Playboy of the Western World’, ‘The Tinker’s Wedding’, ‘Well of the Saints’, ‘Riders to the Sea’, ‘Deirdre of the Sorrows’ and ‘The Shadow of the Glen’.

In addition to the six plays, to DVD contains two documentaries: ‘Mighty Talk: A Journey with DruidSynge’ - an access-all-areas documentary following the rehearsal and production process of putting the project on stage, and ‘Playboy and Rebels’ which commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the first ever performance of ‘The Playboy of the Western World’ in January 1907.

The DVD also features director Garry Hynes and world-leading Synge expert, Ann Saddlemyer, in conversation about DruidSynge and the impact of Synge generally which was recorded at the Synge Summer School in Wicklow in July 2007.

‘DruidSynge, The Plays of John Millington Synge’ is the fruit of the unique access given to Wildfire Films in the making of DruidSynge. Material was distilled from 600 hours of footage filmed by the Wildfire team whilst shadowing the DruidSynge production – from the first day of rehearsals to the close of the final performance three months later.

Accompanying the DVD is a limited edition booklet with exclusive photographs from behind the scenes of the production.

This collection was financed by RTÉ, The Broadcasting Commission of Ireland, Culture Ireland, The Irish Film Board and The Arts Council/An Comhairle Ealaíon.

‘DruidSynge – The Plays of John Millington Synge’ is launched in Dublin on the 1st of October.
