Waiting for Godot at Oldham Coliseum first produced in Great Britain at the Arts Theatre, London in 1955, directed by Sir Peter Hall. In 1999, it was voted the most significant English language play of the 20th century.
A country road. A tree. Evening. Vladimir and Estragon meet as dusk approaches. Estragon tries to remove his boot. Vladimir examines his hat. A conversation begins, a joke is interrupted. A carrot is eaten. The two men quarrel, then embrace.
It is sometimes said that Oldham’s weather allows you to experience all four seasons in one day. This display will do the same thing – using our spectacular collections of Art, Natural History and Social History.
