Casting Announcement: Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett (UPDATE)

Jeanette Hoile announces her cast for Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Some excellent performances during auditions gave me difficult decisions to make, to find the right permutation of actors to do justice to this wonderful 20th century classic. I am confident that this combination of seasoned SLT performers and exciting new talent will provide an engaging and entertaining production for audiences.

For those who don’t know the play, it will introduce them to the surreal and fascinating world of Samuel Beckett, while those who do know the play, will enjoy meeting those intriguing famous characters again, as they wait for the elusive Godot to arrive.

Jason Salmon is Estragon, Simon Gleisner is Vladimir and Paul White is Pozzo, with Simon Streather as Lucky, and Alex Osborne as The Boy, making their SLT debuts.

Waiting for Godot explores and echoes so many aspects of our pandemic experience, while reminding us all that humour – and hugs – will surely enable us to survive anything!”

UPDATE 12/9/21

Owing to the unavailability of the actor cast as The Boy, we needed to re cast this role. I am delighted to welcome Alec Osborne to the cast of Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett. He is really looking forward to playing the role of The Boy, and to making his SLT debut. He will start rehearsing straight away. Do come and see this amazing Beckett classic. Our production will be on at SLT from Tuesday 12th until Saturday 16th October 2021. Please join us for an entertaining and thought provoking evening!
