Waiting For Godot

This activity is completed or marked as expired


Waiting for Godot is a comic masterpiece dressed to look profound or a philosophical work of genius dripping in gags (depending on your viewpoint). It rose out of the ashes of World War II and rises again out of the Covid pandemic to remind us that things can start over. Renegade director David Glass has teamed up with Hastings-own Theatre Nation to deliver this call to arms performance.

The cast is drawn from the cream of comedy, including Olivier nominee Ben Keaton and puppeteer and madman Henry Maynard. Joining them, Billy Clarke plays the mute and can't-shut-him-up Lucky with unending irony. Then at the core of it all is Patrick Kealey, the idiot artistic director of Theatre Nation who wouldn't let this production die when we were all tossed into isolation back in 2020 just as it was about to premiere.

This is the production of Waiting for Godot that should never have been staged… but like the first production back in 1953, it won't be denied. We've come out of the dark and that glimmer of hope up ahead is just enough to make you laugh. There can only be one post-pandemic Godot. This is it.
