Irish actor and legendary Samuel Beckett expert Barry McGovern performs his exceptional stage adaptation of the famous novel Watt for the first time in New Zealand.
Arriving in the countryside, Watt begins a slow, existential trek to the home of Mr Knott. But how will this itinerant manservant cope when he reaches the residence of his unseen employer, with a confounding list of duties and a collection of extraordinary characters?
The great Barry McGovern has received acclaim around the globe for his one-man performance since 2010, and it remains among the finest, funniest and most popular Beckett interpretations ever.
Capturing the essence of the writer’s dark worldview while amplifying his scintillating humor and wordplay, Watt will have you in raptures contemplating the absurdity of life – and discovering there’s so much more to Beckett on stage than Waiting for Godot.
