Godot is a Woman at Pleasance Islington

Silent Faces theatre company, who are staging their new show GODOT IS A WOMAN at the Pleasance Theatre, Islington.

The show runs from 24th March – 11th April.

Silent Faces are a group of female and non-binary theatre-makers making ensemble-led devised work, and are also proud to be an integrated company of disabled and non-disabled artists.

Their fierce, funny new show is a response to one of the 20th century’s most famous plays, Waiting for Godot – or more specifically the fact that Samuel Beckett’s Estate will only allow this famous play to be performed by men.

We would love to reach out to audiences with an interest in this area, particularly those who are interested in representation of non-binary/non-gender conforming stories onstage.

About the Show

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).
