'Actor Patrick Stewart apparently lost his rag with an autograph hunter outside the stage door of the King's theatre in Edinburgh, after a performance of Waiting for Godot. "Are you the arsehole who was sitting in the front tonight?" was his introductory comment, before bellowing "You know, what I really want to know is how you can sleep at night? I really hope you're pleased with yourself."'


As the UK revival of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot continues, Patrick Stewart is reported to have had an angry altercation with a member of the audience. This week the news just keeps rolling in. You can read the Daily Record report by clicking here, or The Guardian's commentary here. Nothing to be done.
