A long wait on stage

TWO homeless men wait on a bare road with a single tree.

Over two days they argue, get bored, clown around, repeat themselves, contemplate death and wait.

They are waiting for the one who never comes. They are waiting for Godot...

Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot is one of the most significant English language plays of the 20th century, gently and intelligently exploring what it is to be human.

The all-black cast from the Talawa Theatre Company will be performing Waiting for Godot at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from February 3-25.

Tickets are £17-£27 (concessions available), call the box office on 0113 213 7700 or book online at www.wyp.org.uk.
