“A gem of a show” Time Out

“Explosively funny” The Guardian

Watt by Samuel Beckett

Dates: 09 Apr - 13 Apr

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €23-26

Matinee: 13 April, 2.30pm

A wide-eyed stranger alights from a country train. The destination: Mr Knott’s house. The mission: to serve. Samuel Beckett’s wit and wisdom combine in the story of a nomadic manservant in the house of his unseen master.

Written as a novel while Beckett waited in the south of France for the Second World War to end, Watt comes to the stage in a one-man production of sparkling humour and heart-stirring poignancy. This is a rare opportunity to see the master’s work performed by one of the greatest Beckett interpreters in the world.
