About this event

The New Theatre presents Waiting for the Offo, a new stageplay about coming-of-age late in the Dublin session scene.

In this coming-of-age-late comedy-drama, Terry Joyce and Niall Freeman are two loveable Millennials who can’t grow up.

Inspired by Samuel Beckett’s seminal piece Waiting For Godot (but set in Dublin), the play follows these two estranged best friends as they face off against having no drink, old love interests, the local nut-case drug dealer, purposelessness, nihilism, and finally, each other.

This play deals with the perennial themes of hopelessness, friendship and mental health. Awarded the Dublin Fringe Festival Fringe Lab Fifty in 2020, Written by Mahon McCann and Directed by Conan McIvor, this dynamic new production will take you on a free-fall into the Dublin session scene, the good times we love, and the bad habits we don’t.
