Samuel Beckett
Druid / Garry Hynes

One of the most iconic and significant plays of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot is also one of his funniest, most immediate creations. Drawing endless interpretations, it crackles with deadpan wit and linguistic invention, as well as offering compelling glimpses into our existential absurdity.

Druid's powerful staging has been hailed as one of the greatest ever productions of lyceu. Bringing together charm, absurdity, high comedy and touching humanity, it cracks open the play’s broad humour and reaffirms all of Beckett’s power to shock and surprise us.

Galway-based Druid are one of the world’s great ensemble theatre companies, and have pioneered the development of Irish theatre, as well as touring internationally to enormous acclaim. They have a long history of visits to the International Festival, including performing all six plays by J. M. Synge in 2005.

Directed by Druid’s Tony award-winning artistic director Garry Hynes, and bringing together a quartet of great Irish actors, this is a Godot that remains authentic to Beckett’s original while brightly illuminating all of the play’s tragedy, comedy and grandeur.
