WAITING FOR GODOT
he story line evolves around two seemingly homeless men waiting for someone (or something) named Godot. Vladimir and Estragon wait near a tree on a barren stretch of road, inhabiting a drama spun from their own consciousness. The result is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense, which has been interpreted as a somber summation of mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning. Beckett’s language pioneered an expressionistic minimalism that captured the existentialism of post- World War II Europe. His play remains one of the most magical and beautiful allegories of our time.
