“Let us do something, while we have the chance…at this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not. Let us make the most of it before it is too late!”

Don’t miss the play that changed the rules. Waiting for Godot opens at the historic Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season from September 2024.

Waiting for Godot is a 1953 play by Samuel Beckett that revolves around two main characters, Vladimir and Estragon, who wait by a tree for a man named Godot, with whom they believe they have an appointment. 

Throughout the play, they engage in various conversations, meet other characters, and pass the time in a seemingly purposeless and repetitive manner.

It has become one of the most acclaimed plays of the 20th-century for its themes of existentialism, meaning, and human existence, with the cyclical nature of the two main characters' waiting highlighting the absurdity and uncertainty of life. 

You can see Waiting for Godot live at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in London from the 13th of September to the 14th of December 2024 for a strictly limited theatre run.
