Photo Flash: First Look at Hugo Weaving, Richard Roxburgh and More in WAITING FOR GODOT

Article Pixel

Giving standout performances as Samuel Beckett's quintessential comedy duo, Richard Roxburgh and Hugo Weaving shine in this remarkable production of Waiting for Godot, the absurdist masterpiece about everything and nothing. Sydney Theatre Company's production runs at the Barbican now through June 13, 2015. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

Burdened with aching feet and bladder problems, Estragon and Vladimir pass the time near a tree. Joking, bickering, musing on the profound, the down-and-out pair wait patiently for Godot, interrupted only by brutish Pozzo and his hapless servant Lucky.

Australian screen and stage stars Weaving and Roxburgh draw out the vaudevillian energy, wild humour and poetry of Beckett's writing. Surrounded by a handsomely bleak set, suggestive of a charred, crumbling theatre, their shared endurance test is a touching reminder of humanity's talent for resilience.

The Australian cast includes Oliver Award-winning Philip Quast, alongside Roxburgh and Luke Mullins who recently received 2014 Helpmann Awards -- in the Best Male and Best Supporting Male categories respectively -- for their roles in this production.
