We could start all over again perhaps.”

Two people wait beneath a solitary tree on a country road - it’s a familiar scene, but this is not Waiting for Godot.

Waiting for Godot was written by a man, for men and Silent Faces aren't men... So what are they waiting for? It's time to dig it all up and start again.

Back with their trademark style of playful and political physical theatre, Godot is a Woman follows the critically acclaimed A Clown Show About Rain (“Delightful” Scotsman) and Follow Suit (“Marvellously comic and compelling” Stage).

Pleasance London Associates Silent Faces make ensemble-led devised theatre and are proud to be an integrated company of disabled and non-disabled artists.
