Why watch Waiting for Godot?

  • Waiting for Godot is a game-changing play written by Samuel Beckett and is considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century.
  • The play features an impressive cast including Lucian Msamati and two-time Emmy, two-time BAFTA and Golden Globe recipient, Ben Whishaw.
  • Waiting for Godot was voted the most significant English-language play of the 20th century by more than 800 theatre professionals in a 1998 poll conducted by the UK's Royal National Theatre.
  • This strictly limited season of Waiting for Godot promises to be a standout theatrical event in London and tickets are expected to sell out quickly.

The revival of Samuel Beckett’s game-changing play, Waiting for Godot, is an event you don't want to miss in London's West End. With a limited run at the prestigious Theatre Royal Haymarket, this production promises to deliver a powerful theatrical experience. The show stars BAFTA and Golden Globe recipients Ben Whishaw and Lucian Msamati, acclaimed for his performances in productions like Othello, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Amadeus, and Clybourne Park. Absurd yet profoundly meaningful, Waiting for Godot is a timeless commentary on the human condition that resonates even today.


In Waiting for Godot, Didi and Gogo find themselves waiting by a tree for the elusive Godot. Unsure of who he is, why they're waiting, or when he's set to arrive, they anticipate something incredible could happen upon his arrival. The two engage in trivial to serious discussions to pass the time, all the while encountering other characters who add to their experience of nothingness. Although Godot persistently sends messages about his impending arrival, the question remains, will he ever show up in London? Book your Waiting for Godot London tickets to find out.
