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.
Multi award-winning Galway theatre company, Druid, presents a new production of this seminal work featuring members of the acclaimed Druid Ensemble in the intimate surroundings of the Backstage Theatre.
