Godot Is a Woman

Godot Is a Woman

Silent Faces explore permission, patriarchy and pop music

Overview

'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 of the oven, waiting for Boris Johnson’s 5 o’clock announcement, waiting for permission from male playwrights to perform plays about the human condition.

Non-men all over the world have been waiting to fill the boots of Vladimir and Estragon in WAITING FOR GODOT. Yet the Beckett estate still stands by a dead man’s outdated wishes.

Today Ariana Grande tells us 'God is a Woman' and we decide we are done waiting. Samuel Beckett? Thank u, next.
