Hailed as one of the most significant works of drama of the 20th century, this thrilling play is arriving at Reading Rep in a brand new production, directed by Reading Rep’s founding Artistic Director Paul Stacey, who returns to the director’s chair following the success of Proof.

Two friends are stood somewhere, waiting for something.They’re waiting next to a tree where they believe they’re expected to meet their mysterious acquaintance ‘Godot’. However, as days continue to turn into night, it becomes unclear just how long this pair has been waiting…and how long they’ll continue to wait. What would you do to pass the time?

A poignant comedy about friendship, loyalty and trust.
