Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Comedy/Drama

Waiting for Godot, the 1953 play by Samuel Beckett considered the masterpiece of existentialism, explores the futility of man’s hope, to absurd results. Directed by Glenn Apollo Hergenhahn-Zhao, Waiting for Godot features two wandering tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, who wait by a lonely tree to meet up with Mr. Godot, an enigmatic figure in a world where time, place and memory are blurred and meaning is where you find it. The tramps hope that Godot will change their lives for the better. Instead, two eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other’s rope. The results are both funny and dangerous in this existentialist masterpiece.
