Waiting for Godot

Wandering vagabonds Vladimir and Estragon wait by a barren tree to meet up with Mr. Godot, an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place, and memory are blurred. The tramps hope that Godot will change their lives for the better. But instead of enjoying an audience with the fabled Godot, Vladimir and Estragon encounter the eccentric travelers Pozzo and Lucky, as well as a young messenger bearing urgent news. Between its scenes of riotous slapstick and tender anguish, WAITING FOR GODOT is a hilarious, heartbreaking, ultimately hopeful tale of a friendship that refuses to perish, and a work that the London Evening Times described as “one of the most noble and moving plays of our generation … with phrases that come like a sharp stab of beauty and pain.”
