"Waiting for Godot"
May 16 - Jun 2

Olivier Award for Best Play!

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett,
Directed by Kenneth Kelleher, May 16 - June 2, 2019  Circle Theatre

On a lonely country road, beneath a barren tree, two vagabonds wait for a man named Mr. Godot. As the evening unfolds, a desperate, humorous, and unchanging universe is revealed that has delighted and challenged audiences for decades.

One of the most iconic and significant plays of the 20th Century, Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot is also one of his funniest and most immediate creations. Drawing endless interpretations, it crackles with deadpan wit and linguistic invention, as well as offering compelling glimpses into our existential absurdity.
