Synopsis


Waiting for Godot was first produced in Paris in 1953. In 1999 it was voted the "most significant English language play of the 20th century". It is an absurdist play also described as a tragicomedy in two acts. Over the decades there have been many, many theories of interpretations of the play and its characters. The author has repudiated all theories of a symbolic nature.



The plays tells of two men patiently waiting for M. Godot. They pass the time idly in simple pursuits, removing a boot, fixing a hat, etc and conversation. They are interrupted by the passing of a master and his slave. Eventually a young lad appears and tells them Godot will not be coming today, but tomorrow. Night falls and they resolve to meet at the same spot the next day. Act II repeats the action of Act I only the master is now blind and the slave mute.
