'Beckett’s classic play defi es imitation, but in Godot: The Wait is Over, we respectfully re-join Didi and Gogo as they grapple with existential questions and agonise over the impending arrival of their greatest fear and dearest hope – the mysterious “Mister Godot”. Ian Robinson’s play succeeds in being both a respectful homage to the original and an irreverent flight of delicious fantasy away from it. He has managed to transform the dramatic milieu and the rhythms of Waiting for Godot into something new.
'Godot: The Wait is Over is in turns farcical and serious, physical and cerebral, sad and funny, trivial and meaningful and will keep audiences amused, moved, surprised and edifi ed; and in the end delighted that they have been on this ultimately satisfying journey with these two iconic tramps.'
