Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett

Waiting for Godot, perhaps the most famous play of the brilliant and unique Samuel Beckett, follows a pair of men who divert themselves while waiting expectantly for someone named Godot to arrive. They claim he’s an acquaintance but in fact hardly know him, admitting that they would not recognise him were they to see him. To occupy the time they eat, sleep, converse, argue, sing, play games, exercise, swap hats, and contemplate suicide — anything “to hold the terrible silence at bay.”                                                   Michael Lindsay-Hogg directs and starring Barry McGovern, Johnny Murphy, Stephen Brennan and Alan Stanford.
