Outcast Productions Presents: Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece, “Waiting for Godot”, September 8 - 24

by Carolyn Tamler 1st September 2023

 

OutCast Productions is celebrating the 70th anniversary of Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot.” Directors Dan Christiaens and Robert Sindelor use Beckett’s revised text to explore how the play, originally set in the French countryside following the existential devastation of Europe in WWII, has so much to say to an audience today.

 

Two seemingly homeless men, Vladimir and Estragon, are waiting by a tree for someone or something called Godot. In an undefined landscape, where “Nothing happens, nobody comes, nobody goes,” these characters inhabit a drama spun from their own consciousness featuring the comic wordplay of poetry, clowning, dreamscapes and nonsense, that has been interpreted as mankind’s inexhaustible search for meaning.
