by Samuel Beckett

Starring Siobhán McSweeney

Siobhán McSweeney (Derry Girls, The Great Pottery Throw Down, Extraordinary) plays Winnie in Beckett’s masterpiece, directed by Caitríona McLaughlin. Critics described Siobhán McSweeney’s performance as "superb ... a remarkable feat"  (Irish Examiner),  when it was broadcast live from the Olympia Theatre in 2021. Now audiences will have the opportunity to see the much-loved Cork actress play Samuel Beckett’s iconic heroine live on stage for 5 performances only. The production will premiere at Cork Opera House, as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2023.
