This is not Waiting for Godot. This is Waiting for Waiting for Godot: a comedy about boredom that’s anything but boring.
Directed by Michael Hurst, and written by critically acclaimed playwright Dave Hanson,, this production follows two hapless understudies who are waiting to go on in a production of ‘Waiting for Godot’, but will their time ever come?
As they occupy their time backstage, the haphazard duo wrestle with questions of art, life, theatre and their precarious existence within it. Turns out, the only people who truly understand 'Waiting For Godot', are the understudies.
Hilarious, witty and absurdist, this comedy promises to be an unforgettable theatre experience not to be missed.
