West Yorkshire Playhouse and Talawa’s all-black staging of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot opened this week (7 February, previews from 3 February 2012) at Leeds venue's Courtyard Theatre.

Directed by Ian Brown, the production has a cast which includes Jeffery Kissoon as Vladimir, Patrick Robinson as Estragon, Fisayo Akinade as The Boy, Guy Burgess as Lucky and Cornell S John as Pozzo.

Beckett's funny and poetic 20th century classic follows Vladimir and Estragon over two days as they argue, get bored, clown around, repeat themselves, contemplate death and wait. They are waiting for the one who never comes, Godot.

West Yorkshire Playhouse recently released photos of Waiting for Godot, which continues in Leeds until 25 February 2012 before touring to London, Birmingham, Winchester and Ipswich.
