Genius… A True Masterpiece of the Century
One of the greatest 20th-Century plays, Waiting for Godot remains, after innumerable productions worldwide over the past 60 years, “a witty and poetic conundrum” (The Guardian), “humorous and deeply human” (The Press), and ’’entertainment of a high order ” (NY Times).
Two homeless men wait on a bare road with a single tree. They argue, get bored, clown around and wait. They're waiting for the one who will never come. They're waiting for Godot.
Essentially Waiting for Godot by acclaimed Irish writer Samuel Beckett is about lying in the gutter but looking at the stars. And then of course, there’s the writing and the humour. It leaps off the stage and is hugely emotional and compassionate and funny. Beckett himself said that the laughter and the tears were all that mattered.
