Waiting for Godot, Haymarket Theatre 2009

As an unknown theatre historian who had come to London to re-think her own place in teaching, researching and creating theatre, I am excited at the prospect of seeing the 2009 production of Waiting For Godot.  The £47 I spend on the tickets is the most I’ve ever spent on tickets.  I read the reviews and seeing the favourable reactions, I conclude that it must be a monumental interpretation of a most challenging play. I so set off to see how four notable performers deal with the central problem which the play presents for actors of not acting, of doing nothing but wait.
