A country road.  A tree.  Evening.

 

At the appointed time and at the appointed place, Vladimir and Estragon faithfully return to wait for something—to wait for Godot.  Not sure what or who Godot is, they deaden the agony of waiting by inventing their very existences in clever, cunning, and comic ways.  Without each other, what are they?  They have faith.  They have commitment.  They have love.  In a world that does not yield answers, our protagonists create their own.  And it’s funny!

 

“But at this place, at this moment of time, all mankind is us, whether we like it or not.  Let us make the most of it, before it is too late!”—Act II

“The most significant English language play of the 20th Century,”—the British Royal National Theatre.
