A road. A tree. And two guys in bowler hats. Didi and Gogo, two beloved tramps, are stranded at a crossroads, awaiting a mysterious person named Godot. Their struggle with even the simplest tasks is a funny and touching glimpse into man’s ability to survive in an absurd world.
Considered by many to be one of, if not the, most influential play of the 20th century, Samuel Beckett's Waiting For Godot is a blend of Buster Keaton slapstick, high wit, poetic feats and heartbreaking poignancy. Waiting for Godot asks the big questions with theatricality, tension, humor, and grace: how do we get up every morning, fight through every day, and go to sleep every evening never knowing whether our hopes and dreams might be granted?
Featuring Frank Benge, Craig Kanne, Ben Weaver, William Diamond, Rylei Brown and Ashlyn Nichols.
