Overview

Voted “the most significant play of the 20th century,” Waiting for Godot is Nobel Prize-winning playwright Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece. In this wickedly funny, frequently moving existential play, two men, Didi and Gogo, meet near a tree to wait for the arrival of the mysterious Godot, who never seems to come. They discuss their philosophies, debate their lots in life, question why they were put on earth, and encounter three characters, Lucky, Pozzo, and a messenger boy, who all engage in enlightening conversations about the human condition and uproarious physical comedy as they wait…and wait…and wait for Godot.
