Bookworm with Kids I am nominating three plays for our Quarterly Play but I would welcome other nominations for our poll which I will run alongside the Quarterly Irish Read. The three plays are:
A Skull in Connemara - Acting Edition by Martin McDonagh (he of Three Billboards.. fame)
A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde
and finally:
Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett.
I look forward to hearing your opinions on theseand your nominations too!

Barbara (bdegar) | 4626 comments I'm leaning towards Oscar Wilde or Beckett. I can get these from the library . My copy of The Portable Oscar Wilde doesn't include this play.
Youtube has the full production of Waiting for Godot - it's a great production:'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wifcy...
My favorite adaptation is Waiting for Godot in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jn4M3...
where it so very relevant to inhabitants of Ward Nine. Wendell Pierce one of the two actors in the production tells about the man who said to him after the performance : " Man, I gotta tell you. Godot ain't comin'".

Bookworm with Kids In a runaway victory, Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett is our Quarterly Irish Play for April to June. I have read this before for a literature course I was studying, but I have to go back and read it again. Thanks, Barbara for the links above. If it's ok with you, I will copy them into the discussion thread as well?
Thanks.

Yes! I am going to watch the play as I think that's the best way to experience it.
