Waiting for Godot
Presented by …no alternative… in association with ETHOS
A country road. A tree.
Vladimir and Estragon wait endlessly for the arrival of Godot, discussing religion, contemplating suicide and crotch rot in a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes and nonsense.
A tragicomedy in Two Acts – Beckett’s play pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existential post World War II Europe and man’s inexhaustible search for meaning. This play remains one of the most beautiful and allegorical of our time.
