Waiting for Godot

By Samuel Beckett

On a bare road in the middle of nowhere, two world-weary friends await the arrival of the mysterious Godot. While waiting, they speculate, bicker, joke and ponder life’s greater questions. As dusk begins to fall, two figures appear on the horizon.

Regarded as one of the most significant plays of the twentieth century, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is a masterpiece that draws endless interpretations.

We will present a new production of this seminal work featuring members of the acclaimed Druid Ensemble; Garrett Lombard, Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan and Marty Rea in the intimate surroundings of the Mick Lally Theatre.

‘Well? Shall we go? Yes, let’s go.’

‘The freshest, funniest and most affecting production of the play in at least a quarter of a century’- The Irish Times
‘Superb re-imagining of an iconic play’- The Guardian
