ITG: Waiting for Godot (6-7,10-14th Oct 2017)

Warehouse Studio Theatre

dir. Tim Myers

Two tramps, Vladimir and Estragon, wait by an empty roadside passing the time in expectation of the mysterious never-seen Godot. They struggle -as we all do – to discover some kind of certainty. If they fail, do they do so any less nobly than Hamlet or Lear? Should we care about them any less because they are two tramps, not kings or princes?

Beckett described Godot as a tragicomedy, and the ‘comedy’ part of that is important. If Life is absurd, its absurdity is funny as much as moving. The play’s various styles swing wildly between farce, tragedy, moments of poetic beauty and of rude vulgarity – Waiting for Godot is intensely and recognisably human.
