The Festival presents Druid‘s acclaimed production of one of the most significant plays of the twentieth century, Waiting for Godot at Dublin’s historic heritage site, the Daisy Market, for an exceptional once-off outdoor theatre performance for the whole community. 

Set on a bare road in the middle of nowhere, two world-weary friends await the arrival of the mysterious Godot. While waiting, they speculate, bicker, joke and ponder life’s greater questions. As dusk begins to fall, two figures appear on the horizon. Starring: Garrett Lombard, Aaron Monaghan, Rory Nolan and Marty Rea. Directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes.

The Daisy Market provides a unique urban setting for Druid’s award-winning production of Beckett’s masterpiece. The market opened in Smithfield in 1892, among the bustling heart of the city’s fruit and flower markets, it now lies idle.

The freshest, funniest and most affecting production of the play in at least a quarter of a century . . . Exceptional
