Waiting for Godot

In 2018, our Waiting for Godot story continues across Ireland and the Atlantic.

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 and Druid's production has won acclaim from audiences and critics alike, and multiple Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards.
