waiting for godot

"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. Proudly Supported by DAA.

"This is eviscerating theatre, a seminal play well served. The performances are suitably revelatory for a classic which continually lends itself to new thought." (Sunday Independent) "There is beautiful lighting by Sinead McKenna and the costumes and design is exemplary. Director Judy Hegarty Lovett has many productions of Beckett under her belt with this company, and it bears their trademark purity of vision and economy of movement. To see Vladimir skip about, doing his exercises, is quite a coup de theatre." (Total Theatre Magazine)
