THEATRE Waiting for Godot
COMEDY Doug Stanhope
The Lyceum’s 50th anniversary celebrations are kicked off in grand style with a staging of Beckett’s existential classic featuring Vladimir and Estragon played by none other than Brian Cox and Bill Paterson. See preview, page 83. Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh, Fri 18 Sep–Sat 10 Oct. Everyone’s favourite gravelly libertarian US comic is the lad from Bisbee, Arizona. He appears to be as excited to be heading to Scotland as we are to be humbly receiving both him and his caustic yet witty wisdom. See feature, page 26. O2 Academy, Glasgow, Fri 2 & Sat 3 Oct.
