I saw this play in London back in February 2010 (when it did it's extended run due to popular demand) It was first show back in 2009 at the Haymarket theatre in London (near Trafalgar square) with Ian Mckellen, Patrick Stewart, Simon Callow and Ronald Pickup.

The plot is simple enough - two men - Vladimir (Stewart) and Estragon (McKellen) wait at a country road beside a tree waiting for a man they call Godot. Throughout the play it is not clear who Godot is or why they want to talk to him.
