Waiting for Godot

By Samuel Beckett, directed by Jerome Swan for Amateur Players of Sherborne.

Tickets £10 (students £8) from www.aps-sherborne.co.uk, The Tourist Infomation Ofice or telephone 07585 278722

Waiting for Godot was written in Paris between October 1948 and January 1949. It was originally written in French and the first performance, in French, took place in Paris in January 1953. The play was controversial from the start and opinion has been divided ever since; however, a poll conducted by the National Theatre in 1990 voted it 'the most significant play of the 20th Century'.
