Abbey Theatre presents the Druid production of Waiting for Godot Written by Samuel Beckett, Directed by Garry Hynes

Druid marks its return to the Abbey stage with a critically acclaimed production of one of the most significant plays of the twentieth century.

‘Well? Shall we go? Yes, let’s go.’

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.

Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot is a masterpiece that draws endless interpretations.

Starring Garrett Lombard, Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan and Marty Rea.

Sign language interpreted performance: Thursday 18 May, 7.30pm

Audio-described and captioned performance: Saturday 20 May, 2pm
