nora_140 Nora Connolly, member of The Irish Literary Society, trained at the Abbey Theatre Dublin. In 1991 she directed and designed the set for an all-women production of Waiting For Godot in Galway and then took it to Dublin. She has performed at The National Theatre, Bristol Old Vic and many regional theatres in classic Irish plays by O’Casey, Synge and most recently Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane. She has devised and performed in literary events celebrating James Joyce for Bloomsday and W.B. Yeats. She has taken her own one woman poetry show Going West to the Prague Fringe Festival.



Nora Connolly’s presentation about her 1991 production of Waiting for Godot for the new all-women theatre company called ‘TABOO’. When the production was invited to the Focus Theatre Dublin it attracted controversy from The Beckett Estate and, despite the threat of an injunction, played on.
Twenty-five years later, the records of this experience are due to be included in The Beckett Project archive. The presentation will include a discussion on women in Beckett’s plays in general.
