Godot is a Woman

Silent Faces Theatre



ISBN: 9781804470145




In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting.

In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it.

It’s 2022 and we’re still waiting.

Since Samuel Beckett’s ground-breaking Waiting for Godot first hit the stage in 1953, countless men across the world have donned the boots of Didi and Gogo and trodden the boards – but those boots can only be filled by men, and the bar against casting anyone else is upheld to this day, almost seventy years on.

Hot on the heels of Ariana Grande’s insistence that ‘God is a Woman’, Silent Faces Theatre have decided they’re done waiting. Penned with their trademark playful, political style, Godot is a Woman is a tour de force that explores permission, the patriarchy and pop music.
