Big image


Waiting for Godot is a play by Samuel Beckett, in which 2 men, Vladimir and Estragon, wait endlessly for a man named Godot. First performed (in French) in 1953, Waiting for Godot is nicknamed a 'tragicomedy', being filled with both humour and thought-provoking scenes.


Vladimir and Estragon, two best friends, are sitting in a road, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. They wait, day after day, for a man named Godot, whom neither of the two actually remember ever meeting. The two also meet a traveler named Pozzo, and his servant, Lucky. The group of them discuss a variety of things over the course of two days, in which many things change.
Waiting for Godot was an excellent play. Filled with humourous scenes in Act 1 and many scenes open to interpretation in Act 2, this story will entertain any reader.
