INFO

In 1953 a man wrote a play about waiting
In 1988 he sued five women for trying to perform it
In 2001 Madonna released ‘What It Feels Like for a Girl’

It’s 2021 and we’re still waiting.

We all know what it's like to wait, don't we? Waiting for our banana bread to come out the oven, waiting for Boris Johnson’s 5 o’clock announcement, waiting for permission from male playwrights to perform plays about the human condition.  

Since WAITING FOR GODOT was written, non-men all over the world have been waiting to fill the boots of Vladimir and Estragon. Nearly 70 years later, the playwright is dead and his estate still says no.

Today Ariana Grande tells us that 'God is a Woman’…. so we’ve decided we’re done waiting. Samuel Beckett?
...thank u, next.
