Waiting for Godot wins NODA award

We are delighted to announce that our production of Waiting for Godot won a NODA accolade of excellence – the director Oli Bruce is pictured collecting the award. Congratulations to the cast, crew and production team !

Surrey Advertiser review

“The Guildburys production of this intriguing play allows a fine cast to perplex us, to amuse us, and to make us think. About all kinds of things. About relationships; about being alone; about who is dependent on whom; about nature; about fate; about being happy; about being bored; about being needed; about the passing of time; about memory; about existence. It is a very comic play, but also a sad glimpse into 5 lives. Beckett described it as a tragi-comedy.

Director Oli Bruce has achieved a long-standing dream of staging Godot, aided by the reliably excellent Guildburys team of actors we have come to expect. A fine evening, great fun, and I’m still thinking about it now! Not to be missed.”
