'Waiting for Godot' by Samuel Beckett

New Era Players’ next production, ‘Waiting for Godot’ by Samuel Beckett, is considered a seminal masterpiece of twentieth century theatre. It is a finely wrought tragi-comedy which symbolically captures the unresolved absurdity and tragedy of the human condition.

The play focuses on two tramps waiting at the roadside, next to a leafless tree, for the arrival of the mysterious Godot, who sends word that he will come but he never appears. Instead, they encounter two strangers, Pozzo and his slave, Lucky, whom they engage in conversation. The characters have no fixed memory of what has gone before, therefore, time has no bearing on events.
But don’t wait too long before booking your tickets to see this ground-breaking production.
