Description

In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting. In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it. In 2001 Madonna released What It Feels Like for a Girl. It's 2022 and we're still waiting. Since Waiting For Godot was written, non-men across the world have wanted to fill the boots of Didi and Gogo. Nearly 70 years later, the playwright is dead, but his estate still says no. Samuel Beckett? ...Thank u, next. 'Cheeky and geeky' **** (Guardian). 'Richly comic' **** (Stage).

Amazingly Witty and Cathartic! Fantastic must see comedy and commentary about what it means to be human. I laughed and danced in my seat. These characters spoke to my heart and spoke on behalf of us all about how a male centered society is no good for anybody. Times have changed / are changing … the Beckett estate needs to get on board!

Really enjoyed this show. Brilliantly acted. A masterclass in acting without saying very much. Wonderful physicality and I also learned something about Beckett. Your new fan- the lady with the new pink jacket. Thanks for the leaflet!
