Peter Reid, the director of the production of Waiting For Godot shares with us his notes on the characters and the play in-depth. 
Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot was first performed at the Théâtre de Babylone, Paris on January 5th 1953 under the title 'En attendant Godot'. Originally subtitled "a tragicomedy in two acts" and famously labelled ‘a play in which nothing happens, twice’, audiences continue to debate social, political, philosophical and theological interpretations of the text which was voted most significant English language play of the 20th century in a poll by the Royal National Theatre in 1990.
Waiting for Godot opens on Wednesday, October 24th at Drama Theatre, HK Academy for Performing Arts. For ticketing and further details, please visit https://premier.hkticketing.com/shows/show.aspx?sh=WAITI1018.
