A tragicomedy in two parts, Waiting For Godot follows two days in the lives of wandering vagabonds Vladimir and his friend Estragon on a barren country road as they wait expectantly by a lone tree in hope for salvation from a man called Godot. A man they hope will give them answers to their undefined questions. While waiting, they fool around, entertaining one another with feisty debate and comedic Vaudevillian tricks.
Instead of Godot they meet two eccentric travellers, the overbearing landowner Pozzo, and his tormented servant Lucky and a young boy who advises them that ‘Mr Godot won’t come here today but he’ll surely arrive tomorrow’. When tomorrow comes, still determining to leave, the pair remain and wait, they wait for Godot.
Few plays have attracted so much interpretation. Much attention has been centred on the character of the cryptic Godot. But perhaps the real subject of this extraordinary text is not Godot, but waiting.
