Druid Theatre will revisit Samuel Beckett’s canon for this year’s Galway International Arts Festival when Endgame will be staged in the city’s Town Hall Theatre from July 5-28.

Directed by Garry Hynes, it follows the company’s acclaimed production of the renowned playwright’s Waiting for Godot in 2016.

Endgame is the tragicomic tale of a man living with his parents and his servant in a world beyond time and place. With nowhere to go and nothing much to do, they spend their days telling stories and contemplating the absurdity of life.

The cast includes Druid Ensemble members, Aaron Monaghan, Marie Mullen and Rory Nolan, as well as Bosco Hogan.

Druid’s production of Waiting for Godot went on to tour Ireland and the world, playing to sold-out houses at home and in New York, Chicago, Washington DC and Edinburgh.

It received rave reviews while Garry Hynes won an Irish Times Theatre Award for Best Director and Rory Nolan received one for as Best Supporting Actor. It also won Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh International Festival.

Meanwhile, an exhibition of 24 works by renowned artist Mick O’Dea based on Druid’s O’Casey trilogy from last year will go on display in Dublin’s Molesworth Gallery on April 19 and will run until May 15.

Mick joined Druid as artist-in-residence for 2023’s major production of The Plough and the Stars, The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock, attending rehearsals and performances in Galway and Dublin to create this unique insight into the trilogy.
