Rural Touring – Godot is a Woman

Godot is a Woman

About the performance…. In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it In 2001 Madonna released ‘What It Feels Like for a Girl’ It’s 2021 and we’re still waiting. In 1953, Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot. In 1988, he sued five women for trying to perform it. In 1989, he died. Since then, his estate has continued to challenge any company that expresses a desire to perform Beckett’s seminal work if they aren’t all men. Why? Since WAITING FOR GODOT was written, non-men all over the world have been waiting to fill the boots of Vladimir and Estragon. Nearly 70 years later, the playwright is dead and his estate still says no. With their trademark style of playful and political physical theatre, Silent Faces explore permission, patriarchy and pop music in Godot is a Woman. Godot is a Woman was created in response to our frustration with the barriers and gender inequality within the industry, and a desire to provoke change within British theatre and beyond.
