Watt
On from 26 Feb 2013 till 16 Mar 2013
Barbican
by Gate Theatre Dublin


Tickets: £18

About: Watt

Watt recounts the extraordinary adventure of an itinerant character who one day walks from a train station to the home of Mr. Knott, a mysterious man whom he will serve. His struggle to make sense of the events around him is conveyed with elegance, pathos and fierce humour by Barry McGovern.

From the opening moment, Beckett’s trademark poetry, melancholy and deadpan comedy draw you into his truly distinctive world view. This adaptation stands alongside the best of his absurdist stage plays.

Gate Theatre Dublin, an international exponent of Beckett's work, returns to the Barbican following our collaboration on the 2006 Beckett Centenary Festival.
