Waiting For Godot

Smock Alley Theatre, Tuesday 23rd July - Saturday 10th August 2019

A country road. A tree. Evening.

Vladimir and Estragon wait endlessly for the arrival of Godot, discussing religion, contemplating suicide and crotch rot in a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense. A tragicomedy in Two Acts – Beckett's play pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existential post World War II Europe and man's inexhaustible search for meaning. This play remains one of the most beautiful and allegorical of our time.

Written by: Samuel Beckett.
Directed by: Patrick Sutton.
Cast: Charlie Hughes, Dónal Courtney, Gerard Byrne, Rex Ryan.

“…a hugely satisfying theatrical experience. one of the best productions of this play that I have seen infused with an infectious energy…” – No More Workhorse.
“…Seethes with energy, every detail is thoroughly fleshed-out, every drop of bleak portent wrung from each word, phrase, and situation…” – Irish Independent.

The Snapper

Gate Theatre

A homegrown hit returns. An unexpected pregnancy. An unknown father. The relationships that matter, and the secrets that don't! The Snapper offers a wickedly funny account of the ups and downs of family life and pregnancy in Northside Dublin of the late 1980's. It is salty and sweet, and the Gate Theatre sits right next door to The Rotunda Hospital where Sharon's baby, The Snapper, is born… In 2018 the Gate Theatre commissioned Roddy Doyle to write a stage version of his much loved Dublin novel The Snapper.
