Catch a West End masterpiece with the Waiting for Godot play tickets

One of the greatest 20th-century plays is revived at the famous Theatre Royal Haymarket for a strictly limited season this Autumn. Written by Nobel Prize winner and writer Samuel Beckett, the Waiting for Godot play changed theatre when it first debuted in 1953. The dystopian story is full of joys and irritations as two men wait for something that might never happen. Forget what you know about theatre and enjoy this unique experience that has previously been performed by star-studded casts, such as Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Nathan Lane. Book your tickets now for this strictly limited run. 

Estragon and Vladimir are waiting by a tree for a man named Godot. They don’t know who Godot is, why they’re meeting him, or when he’ll arrive. All that they know is something incredible might happen when he does. The men find ways of entertaining themselves in a world where answers are scarce as they argue, joke and wait. Theatregoers will experience a tragic, gripping, comedy that has been voted the most significant English-language play of the 20th century. 

Award-winning actor, Ben Whishaw (Paddington, The Danish Girl) stars as Vladimir. Joining Whishaw on stage is Lucian Msamati (Master Harrold and the Boys, Amadeus, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom) as Estragon.

Directed by theatre and film director, James Macdonald (Blasted, Cleansed), the previous associate and deputy director of the Royal Court Theatre from 1992 to 2006. Produced by Fictionhouse Limited and Kate Horton (good, Little Island in Manhattan), the previous director of the Royal Court Theatre and commercial director of the Royal Shakespeare Company. 

With Samuel Beckett‘s masterpiece, theatregoers are in for an incredible few hours of entertainment. Don’t miss the show that changed the theatre rulebook as the Waiting for Godot play opens at the famous Theatre Royal Haymarket for a limited season this August.
