02 November 2015
Waiting for Godot.
Samuel Beckett’s 60-year-old masterpiece, Waiting for Godot, will take to the stage at The Old Courthouse, Antrim on Tuesday 3 November at 7.30pm.
Part story, part burlesque, Beckett’s unique, timeless play moves seamlessly between absurdist comic sketch and captivating philosophical drama. Waiting for Godot was first produced in Great Britain at the Arts Theatre, London in 1955, directed by Sir Peter Hall. In 1999, it was voted the most significant English language play of the 20th Century.
Samuel Beckett was an Irish playwright, novelist and theatre director who is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of modern times. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1969. His plays include Endgame, Krapp's Last Tape and Happy Days. He died in 1989.
London Classic Theatre has been delighting audiences in Antrim with their striking productions for many years, including Entertaining Mr Sloane, Abigail’s Party, The Caretaker and Betrayal. This promises to be another unmissable night of theatre!
