Last night, Waiting for Godot officially reopened back at London’s Arts Theatre, where Samuel Beckett’s pivotal play first had its English-language premiere 62 years ago. How does the production look, then and now? Full production photos – and a fascinating 1955 archive clipping – below…
Didi and Gogo wait on a country road by a tree for a man named Godot. All they know is that when Godot arrives they will be saved. If he doesn’t arrive they have to come back tomorrow and wait again.
AC Productions’ definitive Irish revival of Waiting for Godot is directed by Peter Reid and stars Nick Devlin as Vladimir, Patrick O’Donnell as Estragon, Paul Kealyn as Pozzo and Paul Elliot as Lucky. It runs for a strictly limited season from 5 to 23 September 2017.
