Latest Review: "A theatrically sound, dynamic and engaging production, but with its critically flawed interpretat..."

Ask people to name a top play by Samuel Beckett and a great many people will respond with his masterpiece Waiting For Godot and as a result it is no wonder audiences rush to see it whenever it returns to the capital.

With that in mind expect great excitement as this production of the Irish playwright’s classic heads to the Arts Theatre in London’s West End, once again displaying the acting skills of some talented performers as they inhabit the classic roles, whose interactions through the play are both hilarious and profound.

Those actors take the forms of Patrick O’Donnell and Nick Devlin as Gogo an Didi, the characters waiting for Godot. Along the way they also meet Pozzo (Paul Kealyn) and his slave Lucky (Conor Donelyn) whilst arguing and discussing life.

Beckett’s play was penned back in the late 1940s and was eventually seen by London audiences in the middle of the next decade. Over the years since its premiere there have been an array of big names taking on the lead roles, with a particularly high profile production appearing at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the last decade.

This time a range of actors take on the various parts as the Arts Theatre becomes the latest home of this touring show, which has been seen around the world. As such, West End audiences will finally see why this has earned great acclaim wherever it has been staged.

Waiting For Godot, directed by Peter Reid, runs at the Arts Theatre from Tuesday 5th September 2017.
