    Name: Waiting for Godot
    Date: November 8, 2018 - November 11, 2018
    Event Description:
    Information about the play from Dramatists Play Service: "The Story: The NY World-Telegram describes: "GODOT cannot be compared to any other theater work, because its purpose is so different. Two dilapidated bums fill their days as painlessly as they can. They wait for Godot, a personage who will explain their interminable insignificance, or put an end to it. They are resourceful, with quarrels and their dependence on each other, as children are. They pass the time 'which would have passed anyway.' A brutal man of means comes by, leading a weakling slave who does his bidding like a mechanical doll. Later on he comes back, blind, and his slave is mute, but the relationship is unchanged. Every day a child comes from the unknown Godot, and evasively puts the big arrival off until tomorrow…It is a tragic view. Yet, in performance, most of it is brilliant, bitter comedy…It is a portrait of the dogged resilience of a man's spirit in the face of little hope." A classic of the modern theatre. On Broadway, WAITING FOR GODOT roused audiences to demonstrations of enthusiasm and anger. A play that will provide an exciting challenge for groups interested in producing something out of the ordinary. "…moving, often funny, grotesquely beautiful and utterly absorbing." —NY Post. "…at once pathetic and hilarious." —NY World-Telegram."
