Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett has been described as a show where “nothing
happens… twice.” But, what makes Godot such a poignant work are the characters
Beckett has crafted. These “clowns” are more human than we generally allow
ourselves to be. They are placed in a simple situation and strive to make
sense out of an apparently pointless and painful existence through their
struggle for love and understanding. Godot is a brilliant balance of comedy
and tragedy that removes “the story” to bring drama to the exploration of
the human condition.
