Whether you are a fan of Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece Waiting For Godot or you have never experienced the story (something you should rectify at once!), Dave Hanson’s play headed to the St James Theatre will be a unique treat. Waiting For Waiting For Godot is an acclaimed story that has already wowed audiences and critics on the other side of the Atlantic and now heads to London, where it will be directed by Mark Bell.
Whilst Waiting For Godot focuses on the well known tramps Vladimir and Estragon as they wait for the eponymous Godot, Waiting For Waiting For Godot focuses on two acting understudies in a production of the Beckett play, Val and Ester. As they brace themselves for the unlikely opportunity of being called onstage they ponder a range of topics that would make Vladimir and Estragon proud.
Writer Dave Hanson enjoyed great success with Waiting For Waiting For Godot when it appeared in New York, though he has also made a name for himself for acting and writing work for television and the internet, with Inside Amy Schumer and The Onion News Network amongst his credits. In addition to Waiting For Waiting For Godot, he also wrote the play The Exit Interview.
But for theatregoers on this side of the Atlantic, they will be particularly impressed with the choice of director in Mark Bell, who has had success of his own with West End productions like The Play That Goes Wrong and The Comedy About A Bank Robbery. Both shows still play in the capital; the former at the Duchess Theatre and the latter at the Criterion Theatre.
Waiting For Waiting For Godot runs at the St James Theatre from Tuesday 30th August 2016.
