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.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
