Druid’s acclaimed production of Beckett’s seminal play, Waiting for Godot will embark on an extensive national tour spending 5 weeks in venues across Ireland, beginning it’s run on the 22nd February until 3rd March 2018 at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway.

Druid’s 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 in exterior locations 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, playing to capacity audiences at both venues.

“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 created something very special.’”

Audiences around the country will now have an opportunity to see this engaging new production, a theatrical Tour-de-Force from Ireland’s premier independent theatre company in ‘The freshest, funniest and most affecting production of the play in at least a quarter of a century’ – The Irish Times.

There is limited ticket availability so early booking is advised.
