Gate Theatre Dublin. Barry McGovern in


Wed 13 Feb 2013 - Sun 17 Feb 2013

By Samuel Beckett

Texts selected from the novel selected by Barry McGovern


Watt is the extraordinary story of an itinerant character who walks one day from a train station into the home of Mr Knott, whom he will serve.

The bizarre adventures of Watt, and his struggle to make sense of the world around him, are told with verbal elegance, immense pathos and fierce humour in a precision performance direct from a sellout season during the Edinburgh International Festival.

The coming together of the Gate Theatre Dublin, Barry McGovern and Samuel Beckett is the Holy Trinity of Irish theatre.

Performed by Barry McGovern

Director: Tom Creed

Quite simply outstanding … I got an almost delirious joy from hearing, and seeing, an hour-long distillation of Beckett’s novel… McGovern reminded us that Beckett was, among many other things, one of the great irish humorists ... explosively funny. THE GUARDIAN
