July 24th - Aug 19th, 2023
A summer afternoon in 1964.
Two great playwrights...Beckett and Pinter... One very sticky wicket!
With a SOIRÉE PERFORMANCE at 7pm on Thursday, August 3rd, 2023
BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE is proud to present…
(Or Yes... No... Wait...)
By Shomit Dutta
Before Samuel Beckett became the playwright universally known for Waiting for Godot, he was a cricketer. He is still the only Nobel prize-winner to feature in the pages of Wisden as a first-class player.
His friend and fellow Nobel prize-winner, Harold Pinter, whose best-known works include The Birthday Party and Betrayal, described cricket as ‘the greatest thing that God created on earth’.
Stumped is a brilliant absurdist comedy, which explores the friendship between these two great men and the strains imposed upon it by the most civilised of summer sports.
‘Perfect pitch for lovers of drama and cricket’ The Guardian
‘A real treat... see it if you can’ The Spectator
