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.
