What Is the Story of Waiting For Godot?
Samuel Beckett’s classic tells the story of Vladimir (Didi) and Estragon (Gogo), two wanderers who meet at a tree in the middle of nowhere to wait for the man who will change everything: Godot. Although they aren’t sure exactly when he is coming, Vladimir (and, to a lesser extent, Estragon) knows one thing for sure—Godot is coming. The duo is temporarily sidetracked when a pompous, wealthy traveler named Pozzo and his sniveling, elderly servant, Lucky, pass through. As the hours turn into days, Didi and Gogo become less sure of where they are, why they are waiting, how much time has passed and whether or not Godot is actually coming for them after all. Still, they wait, just in case.
