Waiting for Godot
by Samuel Beckett
A Co-production with Ubuntu Theater Project
Entering the aftermath of the horrific World War II only to be faced with a potentially apocalyptic Cold War in full force, Samuel Beckett captured the pervasive existential crisis felt across the globe in the allegory of two bedraggled companions forever waiting for a stranger named Godot. Considered a seminal masterpiece in the Western canon, Waiting For Godot symbolically captures the absurdity, comedy, and tragedy of humanity's attempt to reckon with a wasteland of humanity's own creation.
