We know you have been waiting for our next Access Performance at Circa Theatre…… so we thought it only fitting that Waiting for Godot would become our next Audio described Performance!

Circa Theatre is excited to present an Audio Described performance and touch tour on Tuesday 14th May. There will be a touch tour at 5.30pm and an audio described performance of Waiting for Godot at 6.30pm.

We are offering a special price of $25 for Waiting for Godot to all patrons. Companion tickets are free.

Waiting for Godot

Two men wait on a bare road with a single tree. They are in no particular time or place – nowhere and everywhere. Over two days they argue, get bored, clown around, repeat themselves, and wait. They’re waiting for the one who will never come. They’re waiting for Godot.

Who, or what, is Godot? Whatever you want, a metaphor for every kind of thing you can think of. Then of course, there’s the writing and the humour. It leaps off the stage and is hugely emotional and compassionate and funny. Beckett himself said that the laughter and the tears were all that mattered.

One of the greatest 20th-Century plays, Waiting for Godot remains, after innumerable productions worldwide over the past 60 years, “a witty and poetic conundrum” (The Guardian), “humorous and deeply human” (The Press), “entertainment of a high order” (NY Times).

To book tickets for Waiting for Godot please call the Circa Box Office on 04 801 7992 or visit in person at 1 Taranaki Street. This show is 140 minutes long including a 15 minute interval.
