Godot is a Woman

Godot is a Woman

Event Information


Thu 22 Jun

In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting.

In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it.

In 2001 Madonna released What It Feels Like for a Girl.

It’s 2023 and we’re still waiting.

Since Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot, he and his estate have notoriously challenged - often legally - non-male companies that wish to perform it. Silent Faces bring their trademark style of playful, political, physical theatre in a whip-smart interrogation of gender, authorial copyright and the cultural significance of Madonna’s 1989 album, Like a Prayer.
