Waiting For Godot in London

Waiting for Godot returns to the West End in 2024. It’s a fresh new revival of the Irish playwright Samuel Beckett’s classic theatre-changing play. Starring the respected stars of film, TV and stage Lucian Msamati, who thrilled us in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and Death in Paradise, and Ben Whishaw of Mojo and Hamlet fame, it remains one of the greatest plays of the 20th century.

Waiting for Godot revolutionised playwriting, always being performed on a stage somewhere in the world and an international favourite. A brand new production of Beckett’s masterpiece directed by James Macdonald, it’s on at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season from September 2024 onwards.

Waiting For Godot – The beloved Beckett classic

Waiting For Godot is all about Vladimir and Estragon, two men who wait by a tree for a man called Godot. They don’t know who he is, why they’re meeting him or when he’s going to arrive, but they do know something incredible could happen when he does.

Godot keeps sending messages that he’s on the way, but will he ever turn up? Lucky and Pozzo join the conversation and decide not to end it all despite their sufferings. While Vladimir and Estragon don’t feel they really belong anywhere, they’re looking for Godot to supply enlightenment. The resulting hope they feel helps them to rise above their futile existence.

As the dialogue goes: “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!” What an existential treat!

Waiting For Godot cast and creative team

Two respected actors take the starring roles – Ben Wishaw and Lucian Msamati. Lucian Msamati plays Estragon in the new production of Waiting for Godot at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. His long list of theatre credits includes Master Harrold and the Boys, Amadeus, A Wolf in Snakeskin Shoes, Othello (RSC), The Amen Corner, Comedy of Errors, Ruined and many more, along with a load of excellent work on TV and in the movies.

Ben Wishaw plays Vladimir. He’s a multi award-winning British actor whose theatre credits include Mojo, Peter and Alice, Some Trace of Her, The Seagull, Hamlet, Julius Caesar and many more. He’s also a big hitter on TV and movies with film roles as varied as Q in Skyfall, Spectre and No Time To Die, the voice of Paddington in Paddington, The Danish Girl, Armando Iannucci’s The Personal History of David Copperfield and many others.

Directed by James Macdonald, the rest of the creatives will be announced nearer the time, as will the remaining cast.
