BARRY MCGOVERN IN WATT BY SAMUEL BECKETT



Barry McGovern in Watt by Samuel Beckett

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.

“a gem of a show”   Time Out

“explosively funny”’  The Guardian

“It’s marvellous theatre and, strangely for Beckett, you leave with warmth in your soul.”  Sunday Independent

“His presence on stage is nothing short of electrifying… the production has the audience hooked on every single word… splendid wit and utter charm”  meg.ie

“It was a privilege to be in the audience.”   No More Workhorse
