“Off we go again,” says Es­tragon, and later Vladimir, and un­til this won­der­ful pro­duc­tion ap­peared last year, you knew ex­actly how they felt. Beck­ett’s ear­li­est the­atri­cal mas­ter­piece, long the un­of­fi­cial prop­erty of the Gate Theatre, now makes far more reg­u­lar ap­pear­ances than its fa­mous no-show. That makes Druid’s ex­cep­tional stag­ing all the more mirac­u­lous. Di­rected with en­ergy and heart by Garry Hynes, de­signed with art­ful sim­plic­ity by Fran­cis O’Con­nor, and per­formed by a rev­e­la­tory cast of Marty Rea, Aaron Mon­aghan, Rory Nolan and Gar­rett Lom­bard, this is the fresh­est, fun­ni­est, most af­fect­ing pro­duc­tion of the play you’re ever likely to see.
