November 7, 2017 @ 12:00 am - November 11, 2017 @ 12:00 am£15.50 - £19.50
The Dukes present A Tobacco Factory Theatres Production of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting For Godot.
Estragon: What do we do now?
Estragon: Yes, but while waiting
Vladimir: What about hanging ourselves?
Two hungry, battered drifters wait by a dead tree. They might have been here yesterday. And they might well come back tomorrow. Unless Mr Godot arrives first. Which he might. If they’re lucky. Which they don’t tend to be.
65 years old, but as fresh and urgent as ever, Waiting For Godot is Samuel Beckett’s iconic play about the struggle for purpose, the power of friendship and the hunt for a pair of decent boots.
“A play to send the rationalist out of his mind”
– The Guardian, on the British première of Waiting for Godot at the Arts Theatre Club, 1955
