Waiting for … the reunion of two theatre greats in Beckett triple bill
Director Trevor Nunn revives The Old Tune and casts Shameless star in a plum roleWhen Sir Trevor Nunn brings Samuel Beckett’s short play The Old Tune to London in January, he will be reviving a forgotten companion piece to Waiting for Godot not seen in the West End since 1968.

Thirty-nine years ago, Nunn and Threlfall received extraordinary accolades together when the Royal Shakespeare Company’s sellout production of Charles Dickens’s The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, which Nunn co-directed with John Caird, won top awards in London and on Broadway. The epic two-part show is still regularly cited as one of the great theatrical achievements of the modern era. Continue reading...
