Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving star in Samuel Beckett’s absurdist masterpiece about everything and nothing at the Barbican Theatre.

Waiting For Godot tells the story of Estragon and Vladimir, burdened with aching feet and bladder problems, as they pass the time near a tree. Joking, bickering, musing on the profound, the down-and-out pair wait patiently for Godot, interrupted only by brutish Pozzo and his hapless servant Lucky.

Surrounded by a handsomely bleak set, suggestive of a charred, crumbling theatre, their shared endurance test is a touching reminder of humanity’s talent for resilience.

Roxburgh and Weaving are joined in the cast by Oliver Award winner Philip Quast and Luke Mullins.

The show is suitable for ages 12 and older.
