Samuel Beckett's controversial Waiting for Godot comes to the Arts Theatre in September. The show sees Didi and Gogo and their aching feet pass the time playing games near a tree while they wait for Godot. Joking, bickering and musing, the pair are only interrupted by brutish Pozzo and his hapless servant Lucky. Celebrating the return home of the 1955 production, the theatre is offering 1955 seats under £30 across the run.

 

About Arts Theatre

The Arts Theatre was built in 1927 as a members club, which allowed it to circumvent the censorship laws and perform unusual and avant garde fare. One of the smallest West End theatres, it has retained its reputation for short runs of innovative and controversial productions. More about Arts Theatre
