CST's Courtyard Theater

A World’s Stage Production
from Ireland
by Samuel Beckett
directed by Garry Hynes

"A revolutionary staging… the best work made of the play in years."

– The Stage

"There isn’t room to count the fresh perspectives Druid has yielded on this fathomless play."

– The Irish Times


Ireland's prestigious Druid Theatre is back with an enthralling new interpretation of Beckett’s seminal work. In one on the most acclaimed plays of the 20th century, two friends wait at the end of the world for the arrival of the mysterious Godot. To pass the time, they debate life’s great unanswered questions, until two figures appear at dusk. Druid, recognized as one of the world’s greatest acting ensembles, returns after their previous CST engagements of The Cripple of Inishmaan and The Walworth Farce with this universally acclaimed production of Beckett’s classic.
