WAITING FOR GODOT
Samuel Beckett in absentia & members of the Godot Company Co-operative
Tim Hardy, Peter Marinker, Jim McManus & Peter Pacey
“a play about courage… the survival of spiritual grace under pressure… unusual tenderness” The Guardian
“endlessly entertaining… this has got all you need” Time Out
“Strong: thoughtful, clear, precise… a serious, sensitive production of one of the 20th century’s most profound works of drama” Financial Times
“Was I sleeping, while the others suffered? Am I sleeping now? Tomorrow, when I wake, or I think I do, what shall I say of today? That with Estragon my friend, at this place, until the fall of night, I waited for Godot?”
The Godot Company is a co-operative of actors who have come together with John Calder, Beckett’s principle publisher, to perform a definitive production of what many consider to be the most significant play of the twentieth century.
The members of the ensemble are Sergio Amigo, Tim Hardy, Anthony Jackson, Kenneth Jay, Oengus MacNamara, Jim McManus, Peter Marinker, Peter Pacey and Tony Rohr. The Godot Company’s co-operative includes John Calder, Andrea Cunliffe with Ralph Petty and Karen Wentworth as associate members.
