“To-morrow, when I wake, or think I do, what shall I say of to-day?”

Two homeless men, Vladimir and Estragon, wait on a bare road with a single tree.

Over two days they argue, get bored, clown around, repeat themselves, contemplate death and wait. They are waiting for the one who never comes. They are waiting for Godot.

Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot is one of the most significant English language plays of the 20th Century.

The play gently and intelligently speaks about what it is to be human. Its brilliance lies in its subtlety; it is endlessly elusive and yet universal.

Ian Brown directs an all Black cast in this new production of Beckett’s funny and poetic masterpiece.
