In Waiting For Godot, two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travellers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.

Waiting For Godot is playing in rep with No Man's Land.

Story

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.

Critics' Reviews

"These accomplished vets—two Brits, two legends, two knights—make a fine pair of performers, and it’s a joy to watch them work together, polished, sure, and at ease in their roles, playing off each other and clearly enjoying themselves."

Review by Jesse Oxfeld from New York Observer

"Under the classically oriented direction of Mathias, the two thespians play the parts they were meant to play."
