Two hapless understudies wait 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.
