    Waiting for Godot

    Ian Brown directs an all-Black cast in Talawa Theatre Company's groundbreaking production of Samuel Beckett’s funny and poetic masterpiece. Only London Dates.

    4 STARS  'Still no Godot, but this all-Black Beckett is worth the wait'

    The Guardian. Read the full review here.


    4 STARS  'Jeffery Kissoon and Patrick Robinson are terrific'

    The Telegraph. Read the full review here.


    'To-morrow, when I wake, or think I do, what shall I say of to-day?'

    Two homeless men, Vladimir and Estragon, 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. The play gently and intelligently speaks about what it is to be human. Its brilliance lies in its subtly; it is endlessly elusive and yet universal.
