Godot is a woman

Godot is a Woman_Square v2.jpg

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 2024 and we’re still waiting.

Since Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot,

he and his estate have notoriously challenged - often legally - non-male companies

that wish to perform it

A whip-smart interrogation of gender, authorial copyright and the cultural significance of Madonna's 1989 album, Like a Prayer, Silent Faces return with their trademark style of playful, political, physical theatre.
