Waiting for Godot


I once had a Physical Theatre tutor who told a story from his own university days, where he was charged with presenting a play by Beckett.

The audience filed in and took their seats before a safety curtain with the words Waiting for Godot painted across it.

In the grand tradition of experimental theatre, the performance set out to determine just how long people would actually be prepared to wait for Godot before calling it a day.

The answer is, perhaps surprisingly: quite a long time.
