From 11 June

The Miracle team is simply over the moon to have been awarded the Best show for ‘Waiting for Godot’ at the first What’s On Cornwall Awards held at Eden Project on Friday.

We were delighted to have even been nominated along with Kneehigh Theatre, Rabbit Theatre & Black Fish.

 

"We’re all feeling especially proud because this is an audience award and Miracle’s audience is the be-all and end-all of what we do.

We would like to thank our funders, Arts Council England, Cornwall Council and the show sponsors, Classic Cottages and Fal River along with all of our promoters, venues and volunteers who’s commitment enables us to take our shows out to venues and outdoor spaces of all shapes and sizes right across of the South West!

For ‘Waiting for Godot’ we were fortunate to be able to assemble a fantastic cast of Miracle regulars: Angus Brown, Steve Jacobs, Ben Dyson, Ciaran Clarke, Hannah Stevens and Catherine Lake. Our design team, Al and Jude Munden, excelled themselves and of course Samuel Beckett must take credit for writing one of the most remarkable plays in the English language. Sometimes, as a director, you just have to assemble the right team and give them permission to start!” Bill Scott, Artistic Director.

What people said about ‘Waiting for Godot’ Reviewers:

“A noble and faultless staging of a timeless piece” The Stage

“Cornwall’s ingenious Miracle Theatre has produced another winner...Brown plays Vladimir as Eric Morecombe with issues while Jacobs’s befuddled Estragon is pure joy. The tenderness between the pair is profound” Lee Trewhela, What’s On Cornwall

“World Class” Simon Parker, Western Morning News “thought-provoking, intelligent theatre, done with Miracle’s trademark wit and flare” The Cornishman

“Taking a challenging play and creating something so compelling and accessible requires true skill, something this production had in abundance.” Stranger Collective Blog

Audience:

“Superb! I just can’t stop thinking about it!”

“ The most uplifting experience. My previous encounters of this play have left me somewhat in awe and a little mystified. Your production had quite a different effect on me - the humour was sympathetic and the characters portrayed with such deep kindness - the whole evening was deeply moving”.

“ A total awakening of the mind, so many things to ponder...I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this but it totally hooked me on so many levels”
