A tragi-comedy written by Nobel Prize winner Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot remains, after innumerable productions worldwide over the past 60 years, “something that will securely lodge in a corner of your mind for as long as you live” (The Sunday Times).“The greatest of 20th-century plays” (The New York Times).
Didi and Gogo dally by the side of the road. They are expecting the imminent arrival of another man. Although they admit that they barely know him and won’t even recognize him when they see him, they wait. They wait for Godot.
Didi and Gogo are reminiscent of Chaplin and Keaton, iconic comedians in the tradition of farce, burlesque and vaudeville. Pozzo and Lucky, the master and slave, are half vaudeville characters and half marionettes. The language of the play has beauty and precision, and it makes its own comment on man's absurd hope and on the absurd insignificance of man.
