Gaiety Theatre · 2 October – 6 October

From Dublin Theatre Festival 2013:

‘…at this place, at this moment in time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not.’

On a country road towards the end of day two friends wait for a man named Godot to arrive. Their comical efforts to pass the time parody the human condition and the everyday language of their exchanges takes on a universal significance.

Waiting for Godot was named ‘the most important play of the 20th Century’ by The New York Times. Beckett’s first and funniest play, it brought the writer fame and introduced his work to a worldwide audience.

Gare St Lazare Players Ireland rank among the foremost interpreters of Beckett’s work. They have performed their stage presentations of his prose in over 25 countries across six continents, to great international acclaim. They mark their return to Ireland with this major new production of Waiting for Godot, bringing their unique experience to bear on the Nobel Laureate’s theatrical masterpiece.

In association with ArtsEmerson, Boston, and Cork Midsummer Festival.
Supported by Irish Theatre Trust and through an Arts Council Theatre Project Award. [Read More]
