Waiting for Waiting for Godot

Wednesday, 1st November 2023, 7:30 pm - Thursday, 2nd November 2023, 7:30 pm

This is not Waiting for Godot. This is Waiting for Waiting for Godot: a comedy about boredom that’s anything but boring.

Critically acclaimed and directed by Michael Hurst, this production follow two hapless understudies who are waiting to go on in a production of ‘Waiting for Godot’, but will their time ever come?

Whilst waiting, they occupy their time backstage, trying to understand art, life, theatre and their precarious existence within it. This hilariously witty comedy ponders Beckett, showbiz and just what on earth it’s all about. Turns out, the only people who truly understand Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, are the understudies.

Hilarious, witty and absurdist, this comedy promises to be an unforgettable theatre experience not to be missed.

‘A witty, well crafted and a powerful reminder that the arts do reflect our humanity and our preoccupations –  a role that is vital and necessary’ – Theatreview

★★★★★ “Delectable” The New York Times

★★★★★ “gleefully absurd and self-aware “- Critics pick – Time out New York
