Waiting for Godot

This summer Miracle Theatre demonstrates why Waiting for Godot, once famously described as a play in which ‘nothing happens, twice’, is one of the most profound, moving and funny plays ever written. Both deadly serious and seriously funny, Beckett’s timeless masterpiece explores what makes us tick with clarity, dramatic force and genuine humour.

Waiting for Godot is an absurdist play by Samuel Beckett that centers on a pair of vagrant men, Vladimir and Estragon, and their efforts to divert themselves while waiting, on a vague pretense, for the arrival of a man named Godot: whom they only know by reputation. To occupy the time they philosophize, sleep, argue, sing, exercise, swap hats, and consider suicide – anything “to hold the terrible silence at bay”.

Miracle Theatre Company tours productions of classic works and new writing; funny, highly visual and intensely dramatic. It is one of Britain’s foremost outdoor theatre companies with a reputation for entertaining, intelligent, very funny and often startlingly original theatre that builds instant rapport with audiences.
