Tony winner Bill Irwin's On Beckett returns to Off-Broadway's Irish Repertory Theatre July 10.

Produced in association with Octopus Theatricals, the award-winning solo show is playing a limited summer engagement through August 4. Conceived and performed by Irwin, On Beckett explores the writings of Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett (Waiting for Godot, Endgame).

On Beckett premiered at the Irish Rep in 2018 to wide acclaim, winning a special Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Alternative Theatrical Experience. Previous iterations of On Beckett have been performed at the American Conservatory Theater (ACT) in San Francisco, and were workshopped at the Vineyard Theatre in New York and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

The creative team for On Beckett includes set designer Charlie Corcoran, costume consultant Martha Hally, lighting designer Michael Gottlieb, and sound designer M. Florian Staab. Luner Eclipse Productions is the tour production manager.
