Waiting for Godot National and International Tour Announced

Our award-winning production of Waiting for Godot will embark on an extensive Irish and international tour in 2018.

Our interpretation of Beckett’s masterpiece premiered in the 2016 Galway International Arts Festival, captivating both audiences and critics alike. There wasn’t a ticket to be had for the subsequent Unusual Rural Tour, which played outdoors in Glencree, Inis Meáin and the Céide Fields. The sell-out production earlier this year had a month-long run at the Abbey theatre in April prior to heading to Spoleto Festival USA in June. In 2018, the story continues....

“Our 2016 Unusual Rural Tour showed us just how much of an appetite there is for this production so it’s great to take it to so many corners of the country, and internationally, in 2018.” said Artistic Director, Garry Hynes. “It’s also fantastic to continue working on this extraordinary show with members of our Ensemble and creative team who have shaped something very special.'”

Audiences around the country will now have an opportunity to see this engaging production. Tickets are limited, so early booking is advised. On sale from Friday 6th October.
