Mark Bell, the critically-acclaimed director behind the Olivier-award winning hit The Play That Goes Wrong and the recently acclaimed The Comedy About a Bank Robbery directs the European premiere of Dave Hanson’s off-Broadway comedy at St. James Theatre Studio for a four-week run this autumn
Two hapless understudies occupy their time backstage, trying to understand art, life, theatre and their precarious existence within it. Described as “delectable” by The New York Times and “gleefully absurd” by Time Out New York this hilariously witty comedy ponders Beckett, showbiz and just what on earth it’s all about. Turns out, the only people who truly understand Beckett’s Waiting For Godot, are the understudies.
Mark Bell says: “I am very, very excited to be directing Waiting For Waiting For Godot, the funniest play I have read in a long time. It is wonderful to be working on a piece of new American writing making its debut in London. Dave Hanson has written a sharp and intelligent comedy and I am very much looking forward to working on it.”
