Peter O’Toole, Eamon Kelly and Donal Mc Cann in Waiting for Godot

Peter O’Toole starred in the Abbey Theatre’s first production of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett directed by Sean Cotter. During the run of this play, the theatre was also hired out on two Sunday nights for the E.S.B. Itinerant Settlement Week and for a Choral Concert presented by The Lindsay Singers. The Abbey Theatre was a hub for social events such as these.
