Waiting for Margot (1999)

‘Waiting for Margot’ by Peter Hussey (May)

Peter Hussey’s play emerged from the scriptwriting workshops run by the company and was staged in a rehearsed reading in The Blue Room, George’s Street, Newbridge in May 1999.

The play is a romp in one act and features two of the weird sisters from Macbeth waiting on the common for the third to arrive. A man, whom they mistake for Macbeth but who is really Godot, arrives and in the ensuing confusion questions are raised and smartly answered about the relationships of characters to authors, audience’s expectations and the concept of storytelling as a medium for exploring truth.The cast were Sarah Kearney as Agnes, Kate Connaughton as Sile and Andrew Buchanan as Godot.
