Description: Two tramps on a lonely Irish road await the appearance of a mysterious character called… Godot. Whilst they wait they while away the time by quarrelling, making up, contemplating suicide, trying to sleep, eating a carrot and gnawing on some chicken bones.
For his hilarious, poignant and unforgettable play, Beckett created one of the great comedic double acts in modern theatre. Once famously described as ‘a play in which nothing happens, twice’, Theatre Nation bring their customary wit, humour and flair for highly expressive physical theatre to Beckett’s masterpiece.
Theatre Nation are a professional theatre company based in Hastings. An artistic partnership between Artistic Director Patrick Kealey and writer/producer Tom Daldry, they are rapidly gaining a reputation for creating innovative productions of classic texts and are acclaimed for their expressive bold style.

They are currently mentoring emerging theatre talents in a number of disciplines: including design, costume, sound and producing. In addition, they provide workshops and reduced price performances for youth groups, schools and colleges.
