It’s 2021 and we’re still waiting.

We all know what it’s like to wait, don’t we? Waiting for our banana bread to come out of the oven, waiting for Boris Johnson’s 5 o’clock announcement, waiting for permission from male playwrights to perform plays about the human condition.

Non-men all over the world have been waiting to fill the boots of Vladimir and Estragon in WAITING FOR GODOT. Yet the Beckett estate still stands by a dead man’s outdated wishes.

Today Ariana Grande tells us 'God is a Woman' and we decide we are done waiting. Samuel Beckett? Thank u, next.

With their trademark style of playful and political physical theatre, Silent Faces explore permission, patriarchy and pop music in GODOT IS A WOMAN.
