Easter Week 4
‘We are all born mad. Some remain so.’
Audiences have been waiting for Godot for decades. But they never get bored of doings so. Comic, tragic, sophisticated, bawdy, cheerful and terrifying by turn, this is a play in which nothing and everything happens. But mostly nothing…
Vladimir. Estragon. An unforgiving wasteland. And a tree. Time passes. Others come and go. But nothing really seems to change. How near is death? How unreachable is repentance? How long have they been waiting for Godot? How long will they wait?
Relishing the play’s joyousness and desperation, this production brings freshness to this modernist masterpiece. It presents the audience with a deteriorating, but youthful Vladimir and Estragon, a failed pair of entertainers, whose comic clumsiness as young adults makes their gradual wilting all the more tragic.
Come and be amused and bemused by the deteriorating youth in this production of Beckett’s timeless classic.
