2 Performances: 1.30pm & 7:00pm
Waiting for Godot is an absurdist play in which two characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly and in vain for the arrival of someone named Godot. It is one of the most influential and revered plays of the 20th Century.
Set in an apocalyptic landscape, what first seems a play about nihilism, becomes an epic journey of life affirming optimism.
Mercury’s Wings Theatre Company brings their sell-out production of Waiting for Godot, situated in outback Australia, to Byron Theatre.
Actors James Anderson (Shakespeare’s Globe UK) and Stuart Lumsden (Black Swan Theatre) reprise their roles as Gogo and Didi, and will be joined by Patrick Mitchell (La Boite, Darwin Theatre Company) as Pozzo.
“As an educator and Education Officer… I was thoroughly impressed with the production of Waiting for Godot …particularly relevant for the school/academic audience and perfect for comparing and contrasting original and reimagined works.”
“Fragile and raucous… especially engaging”
