'Astride of a grave in a difficult birth. Down in the hole, lingeringly, the grave-digger puts on the forceps. We have time to grow old. The air is full of our cries. [He listens.] But habit is a great deadener.' Vladimir, Waiting for Godot Beckett’s most popular and well-known work is a finely wrought tragicomedy exploring the battle between the futility of life and the fundamental human desire to survive.
‘The great paradox of so fine a production of a play about killing time is that time seems to whiz by while you are watching it.’ Daily Telegraph, 1999
