This year our dramatic production is something different. Waiting is a workshopped adaptation of the iconic absurdist play ‘Waiting for Godot’ by Samuel Beckett.
The play explores the existence of a group of characters that have found themselves trapped in a nameless dark hole. Absent of conventional time, the characters follow a militaristic set of actions constructed by the group’s leaders Mr Giddy, and his subservient sidekick Pop.
The play is post-modern and pulls from pop-culture, past-culture and future–culture in order to fully express the irritation of a community waiting to break out of their wait for someone or something to save them.
The audience is seated on three sides of the stage alongside the cast as they act. Having the audience seated on stage with the actors emphasises the feeling of entrapment and the audience shares in the experience of the waiting game.
You can buy tickets online via www.quicket.co.za (enter Waiting as the event name) or from the school shop. Please note that the seating is unreserved so arrive early if you would like a choice of the prime seats.
