The Wednesday 15 November performance of Waiting for Waiting for Godot has unfortunately had to be cancelled, all other performances will be going ahead. 

This is not Waiting for Godot. This is Waiting for Waiting for Godot: a comedy about boredom that’s anything but boring.

Two hapless understudies wait to go on in a production of Samuel Beckett’s iconic ‘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.
